HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Turnham Green and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Turnham Green property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Turnham Green property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw cracks along the garage ceiling, is this subsidence? What subsidence information does the Turnham Green HomeBuyer Report include?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Often, homes are erected with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the bricks or render outside the property, or the widening of existing cracks, may indicate subsidence. In severe temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. You may need

to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I get a the full structural survey when investing in a defective period townhouse in Turnham Green as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Often referred to as the Full Structural Survey by many, it is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been reclassified by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a mid 20th century of later unmodified property of normal construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is definitely the advisable survey to opt for the property described. Usually within 2 to 3 days after an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts, the chartered surveyors report will be provided to the purchaser specifying thorough and notable insight on the standard of construction and repair of the house. Bear in mind that certain limitations exist with the survey insofar as a local surveyor is not able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the house or assess serviceability of a boiler. External buildings will also be assessed as part of the process.

House Prices

What things does the Turnham Green RICS chartered surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Turnham Green ?

Any number of issues that can impact on property values such as the number of bedrooms or the location and proximity of nearby schools. .

In order for home buyers to get an impartial house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report in Turnham Green which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. A qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.
