HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in North West London and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the North West London property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the North West London property's general condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

We are buying a substantially modified Edwardian bungalow home in North West London - is it best to upgrade to a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now called the Building Survey. Commission the Building Survey in relation to the house referred to. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a post 1950s North West London home assembled from typical construction materials and methods.

There are several caveats exist with any residential survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor wont be able to force or open up the structure of the property nor can they assess the serviceability of energy sources.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor advise on the safety of the gas heaters?

A will visually check out the accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) at the building, as well as gas affiliated fixtures like the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. External fittings or covers however, won't be taken off. The gas system won't be tested. Gas is potentially hazardous, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

What should we investigate when buying an old building in North West London? Will the property's age be an issue?

Many buyers have considered buying a home with character. A property's age, however, can sometimes be an issue. North West London structures featuring traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential. If you have doubts, speak to the surveyor for more detail.
