About Us

Home Buyers Survey in East Barnet

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in East Barnet and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the East Barnet property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the East Barnet property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the thirties house I am planning to move into, it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring; will a East Barnet Homebuyer Report advise on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a East Barnet Home Buyers Survey your RICS surveyor should usually remark on the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. This should include a general check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the superficial sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of areas like whether there is an off-peak /on-peak supply.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from the most recent PIR handled by an electrician on the building will be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE advise an electrical system check is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Defective door frame

For the East Barnet HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

A fairly common example may be a door frame which has been installed back-to-front. The surveyor will confirm that all external doors work if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. In general, the security offer by these doors will be reported on.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give home buyers in East Barnet a clear understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the residence's construction.
