About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Harold Hill

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Harold Hill and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Harold Hill property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Harold Hill property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I should check out when planning to buy a home in Harold Hill in a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Harold Hill are required by RICS to have local knowledge of relevant local area issues and the effect may have on the property and its value. Prices will probably be enhanced owing to them being in good order. However many areas are falling into a state e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are expected report if the home could be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unsympathetic adjustments to the building will also be advised but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance has created issues for us in the old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What advice would the building surveyor in Harold Hill give in their report?

This is frequently addressed by property surveyors. Houses across Harold Hill can still be subject to issues with the roof like. From the fascias to the ridge flashing, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Factors like badly installed felting are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Maintenance 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 Harold Hill roofing contractor can provide an estimate.
