HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Yeading and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Yeading property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations on the Yeading property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer comprehensive details of the Yeading property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a building in Yeading. Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Scare stories about building vermin are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as termites as minor annoyances. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for insect infestation may include traps. If you believe termites, or any pest, may be present, request that your home surveyor pay close attention during the survey. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like HLA Pest Control Services Ltd, 26 Briar Crescent, Northolt, Middlesex, UB5 4NB, or call them on 0208 864 4007.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Yeading home built in the early 80s, but it has clay foundations. Will the Home Survey consider this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Factors from damp to environmental conditions can cause problems for a house-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of numerous issues, with subsidence being a common example. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. Steps like keeping standing water on the property in check can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. 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.

House Prices

I would like to purchase a flat in UB3, being marketed for £166, 900. What will the Yeading surveyor consider during a RICS survey ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from the price of property from the amount of service charges payable to the standard of the bathroom/s. You can try to analyse flat values achieved in the area for similar flats. The average flat price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £140, 200, which is £26, 700 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £178, 974. 182A, Shakespeare Avenue, Hayes, Hillingdon, Greater London, UB4 9AG a leasehold apartment recently sold for £115, 000 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an independent home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. A chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

The RICS chartered surveyor will attend the property in addition to considering the long list of variables affecting values.
