HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Hammersmith and which is cheaper?

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

If the Hammersmith property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension on the Hammersmith property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Hammersmith property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt get an instant Hammersmith Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to look into if purchasing a converted house in Hammersmith inside a conservation area?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Hammersmith must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local issues and the relation may have with the home and its value. The price of property will be enhanced owing to conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many areas have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. out of keeping extensions

Property surveyors can be expected to inform you whether the property looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented adjustments

to the property should be noted but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Hammersmith? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is rarely considered properly by purchasers. Signs that downspouts are a cause for concern include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. Blocked rainwater goods can result in cracked foundations and subsidence.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are disregarded. 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

If we are purchasing in Hammersmith, what advice would a surveyor in Hammersmith give for residences constructed with stretcher bond walls? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed flats in Hammersmith feature several advantages over structures built with irregular stone, but they can also experience a number of issues, including lack of a damp proof course and crumbling mortar. The chartered surveyor would usually include these along with recommendations. A serious concern is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. MG Builders at 107 Melrose Walk, Basingstoke, RG24 9HG on 07988 430611.

Hammersmith home purchasers may need to consider that range of techniques are found in many homes built in this country. One example is English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.
