HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Osterley Park and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

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

If the Osterley Park property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Osterley Park property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the home I want to lease it looked like there is old wiring; will the surveyor go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Homebuyer Report in Osterley Park the RICS surveyor will mention the electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. He or she will also report back on possible problems relating to things like whether there are residual circuit breakers. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Osterley Park.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1860s property with stone walls. What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Monks Park Limestone to Dukes Gritstone. Defects affecting stone-built property in Osterley Park can vary, deteriorating mortar being relatively common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Osterley Park are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This may also require careful attention. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Osterley Park, and does our home buyers survey mention it? Could damaged downspouts lower the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that the effect which heavy rainfall has on your property is not given the attention it deserves. One indication that drainage are damaged is mildew or damp in the roof, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are not unblocked on a regular basis. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
