HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Fulham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Fulham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Fulham property's general condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about bugs on the street. How do we investigate further?

Property in Fulham are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. Signs may not be obvious, for example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to insect infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your RICS surveyor.

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor go into detail on the state of the gas supply?

The qualified surveyor will locate and visually look at any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the gas pipe route for instance, as well as gas related installations for example - fireplaces. However, the Fulham qualified surveyor won't remove any fittings nor will the surveyor carry out any tests on the serviceability of the system. Of course, gas can be fatal, should you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Fulham, and the home's foundations have been built on clay soil. What should we expect a Fulham Building Survey to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house will have an impact. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a house's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. Steps like swift repair of any collapsed drains can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
