Home Buyers Survey in Northop Hall

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Northop Hall property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Northop Hall property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish bond repair advice, can a Northop Hall property surveyor help? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-walled Northop Hall converted property can suffer from diverse problems, ranging from cracks to lack of a damp proof course. For instance, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Payne & Lyttle Construction at 112 Rushgrove Av, London, NW9 6RD on 07955 626222.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a garage) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Northop Hall will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To properly appraise the market value the surveyor will combine local Northop Hall market factors and other factors relating to the property for instance: general condition Your Northop Hall surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain key assumptions such as there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors don't value things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Northop Hall area assumptions, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like Northop Hall planning proposals (e.g flight path), which will also be factored in. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits for getting a the full structural survey in Northop Hall instead of a HomeBuyer Report if buying a dilapidated detached property?

Although very often described as Full Structural Surveys, they are no longer offered by Surveyors and are superseded by Building Surveys Our advice would be to get the Building Survey for the house mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified Northop Hall house made out of conventional building materials. You should be aware of one or two provisos exist with a property survey because a local surveyor cannot (unless owners consent provided) open up the structure of the house for example, or assess the serviceability of energy sources.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in Northop Hall. What aspects of the loft will be investigated?

This often causes anxiety for Northop Hall buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. Many residential properties can be hiding serious roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. rafters. Factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as replacement of a failed dormer) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A roofing specialist in Northop Hall can provide an estimate.
