HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Hounslow property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Hounslow property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 15th Century property in Hounslow. Will the age of the house be a problem?

Many purchasers would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a Medieval cottage. A property's age, however, can sometimes be an issue, and Buildings constructed with traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as suitable timber, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Hounslow listed buildings. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. Speak to your chartered surveyor for further advice. Constructed in the 16th century, Osterley Park Stables, North-Eastern Range in Hounslow is a good example of a Post Medieval stables.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1810s residential property with stone walls. What related issues must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Ranging from Waddington Sandstone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Problems which impact stone-built properties can vary greatly, with issues like staining being quote common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, and may need repointing. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

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.

To find a specific quarried stone, contact a local stonemason or specialist. For example, Strata Stones, Vista Office Centre, 50 Salisbury Rd, Hounslow, TW4 6JQ (Phone: 0845-567 8700) may help.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Hounslow. What should we do about roof repairs?

Homes in Hounslow in good condition can be blighted by difficulties with the roof, for example, torn or punctured damp-proofing. From ceiling joists to dormers, the whole roof should be reported on, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A roofing contractor in the local area with accreditation should be able to assist with a quote. Contact AAA Roofing Specialists of 46 Syon La, Isleworth, TW7 5NQ on 020 8232 5444 for an estimate.
