HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Ruislip Gardens and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ruislip Gardens property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Ruislip Gardens property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a qualified RICS surveyor look into the condition of the gas heaters?

A surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, in addition to gas connected appliances or installations such as chimney breasts or flues. A Ruislip Gardens RICS chartered surveyor won't actually remove the fittings and won't run any tests whatsoever on the appliances or system. Gas is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that the had been a problem with wet rot - What does the RICS surveyor look into during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for Ruislip Gardens buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Houses across Ruislip Gardens can be hiding serious roofing problems. From the clay tiles to the ceiling joists, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a local contractor can provide one.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create issues? I am buying a home in Ruislip Gardens. Does the House Survey cover this, and what defects will be reported on?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil, with uneven soil compaction and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Signs like a sticking door in the bedroom or cracked plaster can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Steps like ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
