About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Golders Green

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Golders Green and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Golders Green property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Golders Green property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the Golders Green Home Buyers Survey consider this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Specific problems include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Golders Green house's foundations, forcing them inward. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like checking that the downpipe drains correctly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Golders Green Golders Green surveyor inquire into any water damage?

Flooding in Golders Green can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and owning a Golders Green property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via seepage through walls. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Fortunately, no recent Golders Green flood warnings have been announced (source: Environment Agency).
