HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Ruislip Gardens and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ruislip Gardens property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Ruislip Gardens property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Ruislip Gardens Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) home in Ruislip Gardens that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Normally stucco is applied to brick that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly appealing and is was often applied to Regency homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Ruislip Gardens Building Surveys can report defects e.g. water trapped beneath paint

Another example of problems might be when water enters beneath DPCs which results in the render detaching. Re-applying problems can be difficult as the skills are getting harder to find.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our building survey look for signs of flooding damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of owners in Ruislip Gardens and across the country, and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments. Flood water can enter a home through several routes, including incorrectly fitted window frames. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The house surveyor may ask the residents if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that the had been a problem with wet rot - What does the RICS surveyor look into during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for Ruislip Gardens buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Houses across Ruislip Gardens can be hiding serious roofing problems. From the clay tiles to the ceiling joists, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a local contractor can provide one.
