HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ruislip Manor and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Ruislip Manor property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the 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, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Ruislip Manor property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a conversion and the owner has suggested that it has been constructed with Kentish Rag stone. Which major problems should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decoration. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the mid-century home we are meaning to lease we saw that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does Homebuyer Report in Ruislip Manor advise the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Ruislip Manor Home Survey the RICS surveyor will make a note on the state of the electrics if it is clear that they are in a dangerous state of repair. A Chartered surveyor is expected to provide detail on possible problems relating to things like checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances, for example heaters. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician should be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Ruislip Manor .

The IEE advocate an electrical system check be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos paper lining affecting the property. What is asbestos and will the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types may be in building materials e.g. boilers.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding properties, it may be found in boiler cupboard. Technically all forms including white are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to break it and expert advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will report on potential asbestos during the Ruislip Manor survey and should inform you of the options.
