HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in South Ealing and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the South Ealing property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the South Ealing property's general condition along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us. What does the surveyor in South Ealing look into during the survey?

Local property with no other major issues can still be subject to roofing problems, such as. From decking to tie beams, many parts of the roof and loft will be taken into account, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The maintenance of a roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so

that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A contractor in South Ealing can provide an estimate.

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

For a South Ealing property, one issue is weak or absent brick wall foundations. Note that concealed elements will not be considered. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here. Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in South Ealing? Will the Home Buyers Survey consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

The content of soil around the foundations of a South Ealing house will have an impact, with subsidence being a common example. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. For example, warping of floorboards may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like keeping standing water on the property in check. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
