HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in West Drayton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the West Drayton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the West Drayton property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there may be loose blue asbestos soffit boards being found in the building. What is asbestos and does the West Drayton HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials e.g. shed roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in soil vent pipes.

All forms including white are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to remove asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a West Drayton HomeBuyer report. They will mention potential asbestos and will offer advice.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a maisonette in the region Accomodation Lane, Harmondsworth on Accomodation Lane and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. hazardous rubbish. There are 1, 000's of sites affect many thousands of people throughout the UK including West Drayton. Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health concerns such as abdominal wall problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will find structural problems resulting from the site. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Hillingdon Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Traditionally built property

We are buying an older property in West Drayton. Will upkeep costs be higher?

Many buyers in West Drayton would like to own a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. Vernacular architecture, however, can worry purchasers, and West Drayton homes built with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea. Contact your West Drayton surveyor for more information.
