What HomeBuyers Survey is the correct choice for my potential home purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice when purchasing a home constructed from standard materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. This is often chosen by mortgage free buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Eastcote and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Eastcote property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Eastcote property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Eastcote, what recommendations will a Eastcote property surveyor make for a 20s property built from rat-trap bond walls?

Brick-walled converted property in Eastcote can be affected by both minor and serious issues. Your RICS surveyor will cover these in his report and suggest potential remedies. One serious matter is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. For more information, contact a local builder, Mac M Ltd of 22 Grange Avenue, Woodford Green, IG8 9JT on 020 8504 3885.

A number of styles of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. One example is Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks.

If the Eastcote surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can my Eastcote Home Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. In Eastcote's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. For example, separation of the skirting board from the floor may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall)

A Homebuyer Report will contain a valuation and a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise the value of the property your chartered surveyor will refer to local Eastcote market factors and other factors about the property e.g. accommodation The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. it is connected to mains services. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further Eastcote conjectures like issues with access, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like flightpaths, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
