Need a Home Survey ? Which one is the right choice?

    The Homebuyer Report is the right choice if planning to purchase a property made of standard materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bayswater

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Bayswater and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Bayswater property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Bayswater property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any issues we need to be wary of if purchasing a building in Bayswater near a conservation area, particularly in relation to property values?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Your surveyor must possess local knowledge of local area issues and the relation may have with the home. The price of property will likely be higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to the areas being unspoilt.

Surveyors are trained to advise whether the property is possibly so designated and Section I of the Bayswater Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out by your legal representation. Unconsented extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be reported in the Bayswater survey but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1880s residential property with stone walls. Are there any major related issues that we should be aware of?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including cracks. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include cracks. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we do a full structural survey when considering a extended sixties cottage in Bayswater as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly (incorrectly) called a Full Structural Survey by house buyers, it is now defunct and as it has been replaced by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. If you are buying an altered house like a poor condition house, it is the right home survey to get. Following an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the house, a non prescribed format of report will be sent to the prospective purchaser outlining thorough and crucial insight about the condition of the house. There will be several limitations with a Building Survey to consider because a qualified surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Bayswater building e.g. undoing electrical fittings.
