HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Fulham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Fulham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Fulham property's general condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Fulham Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To properly appraise an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will factor in local property market knowledge and other things relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also evaluate construction type and make certain other assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors ignore things like furnishings.

Additional local area conjectures, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or connection to sewers, are made in addition to Fulham environmental concerns like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of blue asbestos textured coatings in the apartment. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. cement sheet.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent tensile strength properties, it may be found in cement. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to move the asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos as part of the survey. They will report on potential asbestos during the Fulham survey and should advise accordingly.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the building I intend to purchase, it looked like there is an old fuse board , will a Fulham survey go into detail on the electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Fulham the home surveyor should mention the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. A Home surveyor is trained to possible problems relating to things like the main electricity supply. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician on the building will usually form part of the survey in Fulham.
