HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in South Ealing and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the South Ealing property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the South Ealing property's general condition along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas installations?

Yes. A qualified surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected for instance, as well as gas related fittings like the possibility of asbestos. The South Ealing qualified surveyor will not remove the external fittings and he or she won't conduct any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially hazardous, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations stipulate that all landlords are legally required to commission appliance and installation inspections every year and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be looking for on a stucco coated Victorian house in South Ealing.

Stucco is just dense render. Normally it is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is highly beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Georgian homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and South Ealing Homebuyer Reports sometimes focus on issues such as lateral visible cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when water below windows which results in large areas of detachment. Remedying Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as renderers are getting harder to find.

House Prices

There is a property in South Ealing. What factors will South Ealing chartered surveyor consider when valuing house prices in South Ealing ?

There is a vast array of things which could affect house prices e.g. the number of bedrooms or issues with drainage. .

In order to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. A RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

A chartered surveyor will always attend the property as well as factoring in the large variety of area factors that might affect house prices.
