About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Wembley Central

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Wembley Central and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Wembley Central property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Wembley Central property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Wembley Central , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does a building surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This often causes anxiety for Wembley Central home buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many residential properties can still be subject to problems like bad drainage. From clay tiles to ceiling joists, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. Factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like repairing a bowing truss, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A roofing contractor in Wembley Central can provide an estimate.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues? I am buying a home in Wembley Central. What should we expect a Wembley Central HomeBuyer Report to include, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil, with subsidence being a common example. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a property. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! There is a real benefit in booking a Wembley Central surveyor to carry out your Property Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about insects in the property in Wembley Central we plan to buy - Will a RICS surveyor look into this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This concern should be taken seriously. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies to a serious infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would need to be wary of when buying a house in Wembley Central in a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Wembley Central must possess local knowledge of relevant local area factors and any effect may have with the home. The price of property will probably be more than prices outside the area because of them being in good order.

Surveyors will inform you whether the building is/might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Wembley Central Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval may be reported, however these should be concern for your lawyer.
