Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey is a visual inspection of the grounds and the internal/external structure of the property and identifies defects such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.

Some of these defects you may not even see or know what to look for which makes getting a Home Buyers Survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, if you're thinking of buying a property in Finsbury Park, incredibly important.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue affecting your property in Finsbury Park and what needs to be done to remedy it.

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line.

Home Buyer Survey tips for buying in Finsbury Park


There are many styles of property to be seen in and around Finsbury Park. Queens Drive has some excellent Georgian properties and there are numerous Victorian properties of many types, such as the very large terraced houses in Stapleton Hall Road, the detached houses in Courtney Road and the semi-detached houses in Mount View Road.

There are numerous 20th century properties in the area also, including much of the estate to the south of the Arena Shopping Park. You can find many council and ex-council houses in the Andover Estate which dates back to the late 1930s, however much of the property was built between 1973 and 1979. It contains three large uniquely designed triangular buildings rise into the sky on the estate, named Didbin, Noll and Docura Houses respectively, after local architects.

There are a fair number of new developments in the area also.

A Local Authority Search can reveal that a property you're looking to buy might be affected by planned or ongoing road, rail and traffic schemes.

A recent such search, taken out for a property in Pavilion Mews, London N4 3QA revealed that the property was in an area that would be affected by the Crossrail 2 scheme.

Such schemes can cause noise and other pollution while being constructed and can have unpredictable effects on property values.

A RICS HomeBuyers Report can greatly increase your and your conveyancer's knowledge of a property you're thinking of buying and it can, for example, prompt your solicitor to carry out further enquiries where there are any suspicions or queries arising.

A recent such survey, carried out on a property in Moray Road, Finsbury Park N4 3LG, stated the following:

"The replacement roof work would have required Local Authority consents and approvals (see Section 11 – Regulations). Your Legal Adviser should make further enquiries in this regard and confirm that adequate means of support are in place."

An Environmental Search considers many important factors which might affect the land surrounding a property you're looking to buy..

A recent such survey, carried out on a property in Ilex House, Crouch Hill, London N4 4BY, revealed that there was a moderate risk of ground instability from natural factors within 50 metres of the property.

London.pngGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Why can’t I have a Building Survey on a flat?

As a rule, flats/maisonettes/post 1950s standard construction properties are best suited to HomeBuyer Reports.

The surveyor has substantially less to check and remark upon when surveying these types of property, additionally more modern buildings benefit from better construction techniques in the main.

To carry out a full Building Survey on a property such as this would be overkill, whereas a Homebuyer Report is designed for and is more than adequate for completing the task and, most importantly, for reporting any signs or suspicions of defects.
