HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Ruislip Common property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Ruislip Common property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details get a Ruislip Common Home Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor give details on the state of the gas supply?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually look at any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) as part of the survey, as well as gas connected fixtures e.g. balanced flues. Should there be any external fittings they however, won't be dislodged. Needless to say, gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're planning to buy in Ruislip Common. Is there a flood risk, and will the chartered surveyor investigate flooding, or if nearby homes have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for residences in flood-risk areas. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.An awareness of characteristics of the Ruislip Common area likely to affect the residence also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the seller if the residence has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Fortunately, no Ruislip Common flood warnings have been found (source: Environment Agency).

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish Diagonal bond maintenance advice - can a property surveyor in Ruislip Common assist? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed flats in Ruislip Common demonstrate several benefits over buildings using regular cut stone, but they can also show signs of distinct issues, ranging from spalling to frost damaged pointing. The surveyor should report on these. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Spice M A should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 07973 905910 or 16 Downs View, Ninfield, Battle, TN33 9LF.

One example is rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
