HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Gunnersbury property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Gunnersbury property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would need to consider if buying a home in Gunnersbury inside a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Your surveyor must possess sufficient knowledge of local area factors and the connection may have with the property. Property Prices will be more than prices outside the area owing to them retaining original features. However many of them are falling into have fallen into shoddy condition e.g. the removal front garden walls

Surveyors are trained to tell you whether the location could be is designated and Section I of your Gunnersbury Homebuyer

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1850s cottage with stone walls. What factors should we be aware of?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Gunnersbury buildings. Defects affecting stone-built Gunnersbury buildings can vary, delaminated render being relatively common.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. Maintenance tips include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of bugs in the study. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for pests may include destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
