HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Ealing and which is cheaper?

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

If the Ealing property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Ealing property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an old warehouse conversion. Will the house's age be a problem?

Some buyers hope to own a old, characterful home one day. A building's age, however, can often be problematic, and Ealing property built with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for a home in one of Ealing's conservation areas, Traditional building materials may be required. Discuss this with your Ealing surveyor for more information.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the period property I am possibly going to lease I think we saw that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - does a Homebuyer Report in Ealing go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing an Ealing Homebuyer Report a surveyor will typically add detail on the condition of the electrics if it appears that they are in a dangerous condition.

This should include a non invasive inspection (without removing any fittings) of the accessible parts of the wiring or fusebox in addition to things, for example checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances e.g. water heaters or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Looking at any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers strongly advise an electrical check need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if renting out). For expert local advice in Ealing from a certified electrician contact Able Electrics - Brentwood , 7 Highfield Road, London, W3 0AJ .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a cost of reinstatement as part of the survey. To ascertain an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will pair in depth understanding of the Ealing market as well as other factors about the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also examine construction type and draw upon key assumptions such as no significant problems.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Ealing assumptions, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any environmental problems like local mining issues, also being considered.
