Home Buyers Survey in Tottenham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Tottenham and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Tottenham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Tottenham property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Tottenham house or flat, can you give some examples of an amber light rating defects impacting roof coverings?

Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. Roof coverings, including flat and sloped roofs are checked, provided that access is possible. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report. Patched areas of the roof is one defect applicable to this section.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Home Survey to mention this, and what defects will be reported on?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Tottenham home's foundations, forcing them inward.

Taking precautions, such as checking that the downpipe drains correctly, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Patches of very dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
