HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Heston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Heston property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Heston property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a flat in TW5 with an asking price of £191, 700. What will a RICS surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Heston ?

There are many factors that can affect house prices like the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the home having hard to change bad taste parts. It can help to compare with flat values achieved in the nearby area for similar flats. The mean flat price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £163, 000, which is £28, 700 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £255, 965. Spooner House, 15, 35, Ferraro Close, Hounslow, Hounslow, Greater London, TW5 0UJ a leasehold flat recently sold for £125, 000 .

The best way for home buyers to get an accurate house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part.

A RICS chartered surveyor will always attend home in addition to factoring in the large variety of items that might affect house prices.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Heston, and think we saw signs of pests in the hallway. What advice should we get?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This danger should be taken seriously. 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, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence.

Remedies to a serious infestation can include chemical treatment and removal of infected furniture.

Damaged Render

What will my Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Heston that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish solid render. Commonly it is layered over underlying brick hardens to a smooth stone like surface. The coating is very beautiful and is/was found on Georgian homes. it can be problematic and Heston surveyors sometimes report issues e.g. when movement of the underlying wall can lead to cracks.

Another example of problems may result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
