About Us

Home Buyers Survey in South Ealing

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in South Ealing and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the South Ealing property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the South Ealing property's general condition along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in South Ealing? Will the Home Buyers Survey consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

The content of soil around the foundations of a South Ealing house will have an impact, with subsidence being a common example. 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.. For example, warping of floorboards may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like keeping standing water on the property in check. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to have a full structural survey if buying a dilapidated period townhouse near South Ealing as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often (incorrectly) described as a Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, this survey is no longer available has actually been superseded by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. Commission a Building Survey for the house referred to. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if buying a mid century or later unmodified house of typical construction materials. There are several survey no go areas exist with any residential survey - your surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the house for example, or comment on non-permanent out buildings.
