HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Southall Green and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Southall Green property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Southall Green property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Southall Green Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor check the serviceability of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the system. This means things like gas heaters at the home, as well as gas connected appliances or installations for example - flue/chimney maintenance. However, the Southall Green qualified RICS surveyor won't actually remove fittings and will not conduct any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings at all, , contact a gas safe engineer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about pests on the street. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Pests like cockroaches may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Southall Green. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to a serious infestation can include insecticides. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Conservatory

On a Southall Green HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects impacting 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. The type and condition of these parts will be considered too. Missing spindles, or those which are either too far apart or climbable is an example. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.
