Home Buyers Survey in Kentish Town

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Kentish Town and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Kentish Town property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the Kentish Town property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Kentish Town property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will a RICS Surveyor take into account on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency home in Kentish Town that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. The effect is highly appealing and is often found on Regency buildings. it can be problematic and Kentish Town Homebuyer Reports sometimes discover any number of problems such as lateral cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems might be when dampness below sills that results in detachment. Re-coating Stucco problems can be difficult as the skills are getting harder to find.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we commission the full structural survey if purchasing a abandoned sixties cottage in Kentish Town as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes described as the Full Structural Survey, this survey is no longer available has actually been replaced by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is now the Building Survey. If buying a modified Kentish Town property e.g. a period house - it is now the most suitable selection of survey. It will typically give comprehensive and critical professional advice in relation to the buildings construction and uses in conjunction with any defects, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts. Outside buildings will typically be looked at.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the house I intend to lease, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, does a Kentish Town survey go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

During a Kentish Town Home Buyers Survey the surveyor will mention the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. This should include an overview or check of the open sections of the wiring as well as possible problems relating to things like the electricity mains supply. Verifying the location of the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Kentish Town. Reporting on any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the property will form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers recommend that a PIR is carried out every 10 years (5 if letting out).
