HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in South Ruislip and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the South Ruislip property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the South Ruislip property's general condition and it includes advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a property near to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including hazardous waste material disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries include tars and other hazardous materials. Health concerns for example cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in South Ruislip will examine structural problems linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Harrow Local Authority and advise you .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our home surveyor inquire into signs of flood damage, or if nearby homes have been affected?

The lives of many home owners in South Ruislip and across the UK have been disrupted by floods, and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent said that the had been a problem with damp. What should we be concerned about during the survey work?

Properties in South Ruislip in good condition could feature difficulties with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormer windows. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of badly installed felting.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of South Ruislip, but it is a health and safety necessity. A roofing contractor in the local area with positive reviews can provide a quote.
