Home Buyers Survey in Whetstone

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Whetstone and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Whetstone property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Whetstone property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a house next to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: industrial waste material disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include methane gas generation. Potential health problems for example congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Whetstone will notice any structural problems linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Barnet Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Whetstone. What will we need to bear in mind when buying a house built in around 1770? Will the home's age be an issue?

Many purchasers hope to own property with real personality. For traditionally-built Whetstone property, age, however, can sometimes be an issue. Whetstone homes featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey. Contact your surveyor for more information.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there may be a risk of brown asbestos ceiling boards situated in the flat. What is asbestos, can it be easily dealt with and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken not to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and should suggest further investigation.
