HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Turnham Green and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Turnham Green property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Turnham Green property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Turnham Green house but are worried about pests - What advice should we get?

Houses are not usually impacted by serious cases of vermin, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment

for a serious infestation may include removal of infected furniture. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Conservatory

In a Turnham Green HomeBuyer Report, what are common a green light rating defects for conservatory and porches?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Red, amber and green ratings give buyers indicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but maintenance may still be necessary. An example of this is end support that is inadequate for the beams of a conservatory structure. Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will be considered too.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to consider when purchasing an old building? Will the age of the property be a problem?

For houses in Turnham Green built before the 20th Century, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as matching tiles, , which could mean expensive ongoing repairs.Discuss this with the building surveyor for more detail.
