HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Boston Manor and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Boston Manor property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Boston Manor property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am planning to buy a property in W7. The vendor is asking £178, 031. What things will a Boston Manor RICS surveyor consider in the process of a home buyers survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could positively or negatively affect property values ranging from whether it is freehold, leasehold or share of freehold to its proximity to other factors sought after amenities. One method is to look at flat values achieved in the area for similar properties. The mean flat price registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £206, 931, which is £28, 900 more than the price you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £387, 386. 68, Boston Road, London, Ealing, Greater London, W7 2ET a freehold Flat recently sold for £82, 500 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get a professional home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part.

A professional surveyor should make a site visit to the property in addition to factoring in the myriad of location variables that have a bearing on house prices.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Boston Manor house built in the early 50s, but it has clay foundations. Does the House Survey cover this?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil, with severe changes in the water table level and swelling of the soil being relatively common. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Boston Manor property's foundations, forcing them inward. Steps like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor look into the condition of the gas supply?

Yes. A qualified surveyor will locate and visually check out the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters as part of the Boston Manor survey, as well as gas connected fixtures such as balanced flues. Any external fittings won't however be taken off. The system won't be tested at all. Gas is potentially fatal, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
