About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Moorgate

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Moorgate and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Moorgate property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Moorgate property's condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a farmhouse in Moorgate. Will repairs costs be higher?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Properties featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Moorgate home and am a little concerned that the foundations are at risk. Will the Moorgate Home Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property will have an impact. Specific problems include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects. , such as warped window frames in the lounge.

Taking precautions, such as removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

House Prices

I intend to purchase a property in Moorgate. What different issues will your surveyor allow for when conducting a professional valuation ?

There are many factors that might affect house prices ranging from the amount of service charges payable to whether it has any outdoor space. .

The most reliable way for you to get an independent property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part. A RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect will wet weather have on our new Moorgate property? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which wet weather has on a residence is not considered. One indication that drainage systems are under performing is flaking or efflorescence on external walls. Poor drainage can lead to lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

In most cases, this is generally easy to remedy, if not neglected. Where this is not cleared out regularly, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
