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 .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be asbestos boards around radiators concealed in the house. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and will the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example cement sheet. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in cement.

All forms are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to move it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a Ruislip Gardens survey. However they will report on suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we choose a full structural survey when looking into a doer-upper Victorian bungalow near Ruislip Gardens as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes still called a Structural Survey by house buyers, it is no longer offered has actually been given a new moniker by RICS and the correct term is now the Building Survey. Choose a RICS Building Survey for the house described. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a non period unmodified Ruislip Gardens house made out of conventional building materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. There are several caveats exist with any survey because a qualified RICS surveyor is not in a position to open up the structure of the property nor can he/she assess safety of gas sources.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect should wet weather have on our new house in Ruislip Gardens? Will the Ruislip Gardens HomeBuyer Report give details on this? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However damp weather and the effect it can have on your property are rarely paid due attention. If you have only been to the home in the Summer, defects may not have been obvious, and may lead to cracked foundations and subsidence. Whether buying in Ruislip Gardens or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
