Which property survey should I select for my planned home purchase in Gunnersbury?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if buying a property made of conventional building materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

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 .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall)

A Homebuyer Report on a Gunnersbury property will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To be able to determine the property's value the valuer will take into account in depth understanding of the Gunnersbury market and other things about the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also examine materials used and will use key assumptions like there being no major problems. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local area assumptions, like issues with access, are made in addition to any Gunnersbury environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

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 Report will advise the proper questions are conducted by your solicitor. Unauthorised adjustments to the building may be commented on but these are really more a concern for the lawyer. Ak Law are a local firm situated at 15 Springbridge Mews, Hounslow, London, W4 5YA might be happy help you with further information. Tel: 020 8280 0811

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we want to purchase it appeared that there is old wiring - will the surveyor advise the electrics?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Gunnersbury your RICS surveyor should usually remark on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This will include a general look-over of any uncovered sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of potential areas for concern such as the mains supply. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Gunnersbury. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE strongly advise that a Periodic Inspection need be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
