HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ruislip Manor and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Ruislip Manor property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Ruislip Manor property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A neighbour warned us about pests affecting some homes. Will a chartered surveyor look into this?

Scare stories about property infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as cluster flies as minor annoyances. Signs may not be obvious. For example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. If you strongly suspect an issue with cluster flies, or any pest, speak to your chartered surveyor

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Can a Ruislip Manor House Survey consider this?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay, with uneven soil compaction and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. There may be little evidence of underlying defects, such as sticking doors. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently. 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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect will rain have on a property in Ruislip Manor? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, wet conditions and the effect it can have on a structure are not given enough thought by purchasers. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase in on a clear day, issues may have been hidden. This can lead to lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to remedy. If poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
