Home Buyers Survey in Boston Manor

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Boston Manor and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Boston Manor property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Boston Manor property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am planning to buy a property in W7. The vendor is asking £178, 031. What things will a Boston Manor RICS surveyor consider in the process of a home buyers survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could positively or negatively affect property values ranging from whether it is freehold, leasehold or share of freehold to its proximity to other factors sought after amenities. One method is to look at flat values achieved in the area for similar properties. The mean flat price registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £206, 931, which is £28, 900 more than the price you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £387, 386. 68, Boston Road, London, Ealing, Greater London, W7 2ET a freehold Flat recently sold for £82, 500 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get a professional home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part.

A professional surveyor should make a site visit to the property in addition to factoring in the myriad of location variables that have a bearing on house prices.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of wall cracks in the living room when we last viewed the apartment. What solutions are to available to resolve this?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a building which compromises its structural integrity. Most buildings experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. New buildings in Boston Manor and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. Often, homes in Boston Manor are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Non-structural cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler. In severe temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a sixties house I am meaning to acquire I noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; will a surveyor report on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Boston Manor a RICS surveyor should usually remark on the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair.

This should include a visual (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection and examination of any uncovered sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as issues like the mains supply. Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the survey. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advocate that a periodic test be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if letting).
