HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Ravenscourt Park and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Ravenscourt Park property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Ravenscourt Park property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Property Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) house in Ravenscourt Park that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really smooth type of render. Typically it is layered over brick to form a very smooth surface. The coating is highly grand in appearance and is/was often found on Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Ravenscourt Park Home Buyers Suveys sometimes discover issues such as damp trapped beneath paint coatings. Other potential problems might be when moisture beneath windows that causes detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco can be difficult as skilled tradesmen are becoming more difficult to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the home we plan to buy. What can we do?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk.

Remedies to a serious infestation can include chemical treatment. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the early 50s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to cause difficulties? Will the Ravenscourt Park Home Buyers Survey consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a property. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. A Ravenscourt Park surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
