Home Buyers Survey in Edgware

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Edgware and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Edgware property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Edgware property's general condition and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

An example of this is a conservatory's concrete floor that is cracked or spalled. This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Edgware, and think we saw signs of bugs in the attic - Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Edgware homes are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Regrettably, pest problems can seriously reduce the value of a property and put your health in danger. Signs may not be obvious, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for vermin may include use of insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber. If you strongly suspect an issue with carpet beetle larvae, or any pest, speak to your property surveyor

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Edgware - Which issues relating to the roof will be investigated?

Questions like this are often asked of Edgware surveyors by Edgware buyers who are aware that property will suffer damage to the roof, including. From the purlins to the roof battens, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A Edgware contractor with positive reviews should be able to assist with a quote. Speak to Mummery M W of 10 Whitchurch Pde/Whitchurch La, Edgware, HA8 6LR on 020 8951 1889 to request a quote.
