Which Building Survey should you select?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Hillingdon and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hillingdon property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Hillingdon property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Hillingdon Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

English Heritage

I am planning to purchase a home near Manor Farm Moat , will this affect the property's value?

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Can your Property Survey consider this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Hillingdon property, with groundwater level variations and swelling of the soil being relatively common. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a building, such as sticking window frames. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in the old property, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we do about roof repairs?

Homes in Hillingdon in good condition can still be subject to damage to the roof, including. Every element should be checked, e.g. rafters. Factors like a poor asphalt covering are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Hillingdon, but it is a health and safety necessity. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing contractor a quote for any suggested work.
