Which building survey is the right choice for my potential property purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Brentford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Brentford property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a building in Brentford but are worried about vermin. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Pests like lice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Brentford. Regrettably, infestations can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for an infestation may include use of poison.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the early 70s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to create issues? Can we expect the Property Survey to mention this?

Clay soil can create a range of issues for house owners. Issues range from severe changes in the water table level to swelling of the soil, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a property, such as warping of floorboards. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Brentford, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Brentford. Is there any English Garden Wall bond advice we should be aware of?? What impact do Brentford environmental conditions have?

Brentford brick-walled houses can experience distinct issues. One problem often found is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Contact several local builders for quotes, including All Brickwork of 11 Britten Gr, Old Farm Park, Milton Keynes, MK7 8PP on 01908 365853.

Brick-build property have been used across the country for centuries, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques.
