HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Harlington and which is cheaper?

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

If the Harlington property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer comprehensive details of the Harlington property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the Harlington surveyor examine the condition or the safety of the gas flues?

Yes. Your qualified RICS surveyor will visually check any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the meter is in an escape route as part of the survey, in addition to gas associated appliances for example - chimney breasts. The Harlington qualified surveyor will not remove the gas fittings and won't run any tests whatsoever on the system. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries about gas fittings at all, or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas safe engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're buying in Harlington. Is there a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey consider possible water damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for residences in flood-risk areas. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a house in Harlington through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Stone block wall damage

Can York stone-built homes be problematic. Which major problems should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
