Home Buyers Survey in Mayfair

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Mayfair and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Mayfair property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Mayfair property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The stretcher bond walls on this house in Mayfair might need repairs. What are the possible consequences?

Mayfair properties with brick walls can indicate various issues and defects, such as sulphate attack. One problem often found is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Cotterill G S at 6 Stanway Cl, Worcester, WR4 9XL should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01905 452096.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Mayfair house built in the early 30s, but it has clay foundations. Will the Home Buyers Survey consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

There are a range of problems associated with clay soil. 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.. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Mayfair property's foundations, forcing them inward. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Mayfair, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I need to look into if planning to buy a building in Mayfair in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have knowledge of local area issues and the connection may have on the building and its value. The price of property is generally significantly higher due to them retaining original features. However a growing number have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors will tell you if the planned purchase looks to be is so classified and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unconsented developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer. Charles James & Co are a local firm situated at 174 New Bond Street, Westminster, London, W1S 4RG will be able to advise. Tel: 020 7060 2700
