HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Bedfont and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Bedfont property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Bedfont property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am planning to acquire a flat in TW14 for an asking price of £163, 775. What factors will Bedfont RICS surveyor allow for when carrying out a Home Survey ?

There is a vast array of things which could positively or negatively affect the price of property from proximity to road noise to its proximity to other factors sought after amenities. It may help to analyse flat values achieved in Bedfont at the same time for similar flats. The average flat price completed between July and October in 2012 was £147, 875, which is £15, 900 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average factoring in houses and flats was £180, 827. 107, Wooldridge Close, Feltham, Hounslow, Greater London, TW14 8BH recently sold for £159, 950 .

The most accurate way for you to get a professional home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an integral component.

The RICS surveyor will visit the house as well as considering the wealth of items affecting values.

Substandard guttering

For the Bedfont HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a green light rating have on rainwater pipes and gutters?

A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition. However, frequent maintenance could still be needed. Quite a common example is leaking roof drains. The drainage system is inspected visually. This section does not include any defects in a combined system.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Bedfont subsidence has been an issue. How could this affect the property, and what solutions are to available to fix this?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be fixed. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new building after time has passed in order to repair settlement damage.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high chalk content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
