Home Buyers Survey in Tower Hill

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Tower Hill and which is cheaper?

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

If the Tower Hill property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Tower Hill property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues for Tower Hill home? Will the Tower Hill Home Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property will have an impact. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a house. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the bedroom wall to a difficult-to-open bedroom window. There is a real benefit in booking a Tower Hill surveyor to carry out your Home Buyers Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we need to be wary of if intending to buy a converted house in Tower Hill in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection they have with the building and its value. The value of homes tends to be significantly higher owing to the areas retaining their original character. However many have fallen into a state of neglect for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are expected inform you if the home looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unapproved adjustments to the building may also be advised, however these should be concern for your legal adviser. Serenity Law Llp are a local firm situated at 150 Minories, City of London, London, EC3N 1LS should be happy to advise further. Tel: 0800 019 7773

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor inspect the safety of the gas supply?

The qualified surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation as part of the survey, as well as gas related installations like associated asbestos. If there are any gas fittings they won't however be removed. Needless to say, gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
