HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in South Ruislip and which is the cheapest?

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

If the South Ruislip property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the South Ruislip property's general condition and it includes advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to look into rainwater goods, and does our home buyers survey mention it? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact heavy rain can have on your property is ignored by purchasers. Signs that gutters are at risk include mildew in the attic. In most cases, drainage problems are usually easy to repair fairly cheaply. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a danger of asbestos duct connectors being found in the ground floor flat. What is asbestos, what are the risks and will the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. ceiling boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in boilers.

All forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to displace it. Professional advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note the risk of asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the building we are hoping to buy we think we noticed that there was some evidence of an overload of the fuses, will the surveyor go into detail on electrical defects?

When conducting a South Ruislip Homebuyer Report your RICS surveyor should usually add detail on the electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in a dangerous state.

This will include an overview inspection of the open areas of the wiring or fusebox on top of possible problems relating to things like inspecting the category of electrical fittings in shower rooms or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should be part of the survey.
