About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Brentford

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Brentford and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Brentford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Brentford property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a qualified RICS surveyor check out the state of repair of the gas flues?

A will visually survey the accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) where relevant, as well as gas connected appliances or installations e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Your Brentford local surveyor won't remove any external fittings nor will the surveyor carry out any tests whatsoever on the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any worries about gas or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe certified Hounslow based local companies include Billy Bratton Limited of 264, Twickenham Road, Isleworth, Middlesex Tel. 08454664614 and The Property Crew of Unit 225, International House, 1100 Great West Road, Brentford, Middlesex Tel. 0800 644 0200.

The regulations require that all landlords must to complete appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a building in Brentford but are worried about vermin. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Pests like lice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Brentford. Regrettably, infestations can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for an infestation may include use of poison.
