Home Buyers Survey in Notting Hill

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Notting Hill and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Notting Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Notting Hill property's condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will your RICS Surveyor take into account on a stucco rendered home in Notting Hill that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really just dense render. Commonly it is layered over brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is highly attractive and is found on Regency properties. it can be problematic and Notting Hill Home Buyers Suveys sometimes show any number of problems for instance dampness trapped beneath paint which cannot escape

Another example of problems can possibly result be when dampness enters beneath DPCs which results in detachment. Re-coating problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would be advised to check on if intending to buy a property in Notting Hill in a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of local issues and the connection may have on the building and its value. Prices will likely be enhanced because of them retaining original features. However many of them are falling into are falling into disrepair for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are trained to report whether the location looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by your legal adviser. Unapproved modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your lawyer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the home buyers survey investigate possible flood damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of residents in Notting Hill and across the country. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before flooding occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the residents, but this information may not be accurate.

No recent Notting Hill flood alerts have been found (source: Environment Agency).

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 17th Century gatehouse. What should be budgeted for repairs?

Older construction methods and materials can often be problematic. Notting Hill property showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller.
