About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Northolt

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Northolt and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Northolt property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Northolt property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a residential property and the seller's agent has stated that it has been partially constructed with stone. What factors must we watch out for, and what will the survey reveal?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Portland Hard Blue Limestone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like staining will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Repair advice often includes fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get brick wall advice for the house in Northolt we're purchasing? Does brick decay faster in Northolt weather?

Brick-built Northolt properties demonstrate several benefits compared to other types of construction. Unfortunately, they also show signs of various issues and defects. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously. L T Construction may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 16 Long La, Larkton, Malpas, SY14 8LP or 01948 820284.

For home purchasers in Northolt seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Northolt. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What will our surveyor in Northolt pay attention to during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for property purchasers. Many homes may be exposed to roofing problems. From tie beams to trusses, every element of the roof should be investigated. Factors like a poor asphalt covering are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Northolt, but it is a health and safety necessity. A roofing specialist can provide an estimate.
