Home Buyers Survey in Fulham

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Fulham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Fulham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Fulham property's general condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Will a converted barn with stone walls create more problems? What should we look in to, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Wroxton Limestone to Spynie Sandstone. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like deteriorating bedding will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Maintenance tips include monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Fulham? Where there is work that needs to be done, what should we do?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather damp weather and the effect it can have on buildings are not considered. If you have only seen the house in dry conditions, defects may not have been obvious. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Fulham. Is there any Flemish Stretcher bond maintenance advice we should be aware of?? Does brick decay faster in Fulham weather?

Brick houses in Fulham will indicate a number of issues. The surveyor should report on these. An especially severe issue is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Brijon Construction, 21 Hampton Chase, Prenton, CH43 9HE on 0151-651 1689 for a quote for repair work.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property.

If the Fulham surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about bugs on the street. How do we investigate further?

Property in Fulham are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. Signs may not be obvious, for example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to insect infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your RICS surveyor.
