Home Buyers Survey in Tottenham Hale

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Tottenham Hale and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Tottenham Hale property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Tottenham Hale property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a building close to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: hazardous refuse disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include chemicals like dioxins. Health issues like spina bifida have been associated with landfill sites .

Tottenham Hale surveyors will note any structural issues linked to the site. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Haringey Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Stone block wall damage

Can property built with stone create more problems for residents? What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Tottenham Hale, and will the building survey check for possible flooding?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record; sensible owners and purchasers in Tottenham Hale are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flood water can enter a property in Tottenham Hale through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the property in Tottenham Hale or on adjacent sites. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the seller, but this information may not be accurate.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Tottenham Hale.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations cause difficulties? I am buying a home in Tottenham Hale. What should we expect a Building Survey to include?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Tottenham Hale house. Specific issues include soil movement. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Signs like a hard-to-open lounge door or warping of floorboards can be early indications of very serious structural issues. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Conservation area

Are there any things I would be advised to check on if intending to buy a house in Tottenham Hale in a conservation area?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Tottenham Hale surveyors are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection they have with the home. Prices will probably be higher owing to them being preserved. However a growing number are falling into disrepair e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

RICS surveyors can be expected to inform you if the property is or might be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Tottenham Hale Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unsympathetic adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.
