HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Whitton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Whitton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works on the Whitton property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Whitton property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What consequence does clay soil have on a home's foundations? Can we expect the Whitton Property Survey to mention this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as sticking window frames. There is a real benefit in booking a Whitton surveyor to carry out your Property Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there might be asbestos fireplace affecting the building. What is asbestos and does the Whitton HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials such as fireplace.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire doors.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to displace asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Whitton survey. Your Whitton surveyor should report on the risk of asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

House Prices

There is a house in Whitton (TW2) on for £440, 195. What different issues will your Whitton chartered surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Whitton on a RICS valuation ?

Any number of issues which could affect property values for instance the state of the roof or whether the property is on an adopted road. It is useful to analyse house values achieved in Whitton at the same time for similar houses.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £427, 895, which is £12, 300 less than the selling price. The combined house/flat average was £406, 912. 195, Powder Mill Lane, Twickenham, Richmond Upon Thames, Greater London, TW2 6EQ a detached house sold for £376, 000 .

An impartial way to get an independent home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part. Your local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A local surveyor will attend the property in addition to factoring in the multiple variables that might affect values.
