HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Childs Hill and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Childs Hill property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Childs Hill property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a building. Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious. For example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to pests can include chemical treatment or removal or excision of affected timber. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can wet weather have on a home in Childs Hill? Could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, rain and the effect it can have on houses are not given more thought by property buyers. If you have only visited the house you are buying on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that gutters are blocked include corroded downspouts. This can lead to penetrating damp.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, unless they are not maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What directions can the surveyor offer for property built with stretcher bond walls? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed buildings feature several advantages. However, they can also be subject to a range of defects. These can include lack of a damp proof course or crumbling mortar. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Wallace Tony at 291 Eastcote La, Harrow, HA2 8RU on 020 8422 2868.

A number of styles of brick building can be found across Childs Hill. For example, running, or stretcher, bond, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
