About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Barons Court

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Barons Court and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Barons Court property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give comprehensive details of the Barons Court property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a home in Barons Court - What should we keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This is often asked by buyers who know that homes can be blighted by roof maintenance problems, such as torn or punctured damp-proofing. From rafters to collar beams, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

Fixing a leaking roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we get a full structural survey when investing in a modified fifties property near Barons Court as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently still called a Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is no longer offered as it has been given a new name by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the proper name is now the Building Survey. Plump for a RICS Building Survey in the case of the house outlined. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a mid 20th century of later unmodified Barons Court house made out of standard building materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. Bear in mind that a number restrictions exist with any survey - a chartered surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the structure of the building or advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Barons Court that we intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact a form of render. Normally stucco is layered over underlying brick hardens to form a smooth flat finish. The effect is highly appealing and is common on some Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can discover defects for example, lateral hairline cracking that describes the lines of mortar in the brickwork

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when dampness enters below sills that causes large areas of detachment. Re-applying problems can be expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting more difficult to find.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Barons Court. What will we need to think about when purchasing an older property? Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can create difficulties for an owner. Properties built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, Traditional building materials may be required.
