About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hornsey Rise

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Hornsey Rise and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Hornsey Rise property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Hornsey Rise property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying a cottage. Will the property's age be an issue?

A building's age can concern buyers, and Hornsey Rise property built with traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, .

Construction materials, such as original bricks, may be required. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs. If you are uncertain, speak to your RICS surveyor for further advice.

Window frame

In a Hornsey Rise HomeBuyer Report what effect can a an amber light rating have on 'E5 - Windows' ?

One example issue could be a sash window with a damaged mechanism. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. This may not be urgent, however. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Hornsey Rise property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a Hornsey Rise property does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a home in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial rubbish disposal. No one really wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include tars and other hazardous materials. Health issues such as birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will note any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to East Riding of Yorkshire Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
