About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Lisson Grove

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Lisson Grove and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Lisson Grove property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Lisson Grove property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor give details on the state of repair of the gas heaters?

A qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the mains gas installation for instance, as well as gas affiliated fixtures like the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Fittings or covers won't actually be undone. Gas can be fatal and if there are any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor said subsidence might be a problem impacting the home. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence information does the Lisson Grove house survey include?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. Heave is less common, and may result from the removal of a tree or shrub and its root network no longer draws water from the subsoil.

Subsidence-related cracks are in most cases wider as the crack migrates upward. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
