Home Buyers Survey in Gunnersbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Gunnersbury and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Gunnersbury property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Gunnersbury property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to buy a property in Gunnersbury (W4), being marketed for £1, 193, 681. What things does a Gunnersbury chartered surveyor consider during a valuation ?

There are a huge number of issues that can add to or subtract from house prices ranging from the length of lease to whether there is a flying freehold. As an indicator, one can try to put side by side house values achieved in the area for similar houses.

The means house prices completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £1, 190, 481 - £3, 200 less than £1, 193, 681 (£730, 184 was the blended house/flat average). 52, Burnaby Gardens, London, Hounslow, Greater London, W4 3DP a semi detached property was purchased for £1, 250, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get a professional house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us in the old property. What does a home surveyor look into during the survey?

Local property in good condition can still be subject to problems like mould. Every element should be checked, e.g. eaves, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Gunnersbury, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the early 40s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be an issue? Will the Gunnersbury Home Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact. Specific issues include soil movement. Drought, for instance, can have a shrinking effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Gunnersbury home's foundations, forcing them inward.

Taking precautions, such as even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Gunnersbury. Is there any Flemish Diagonal bond advice we should be aware of?? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick property in Gunnersbury will be affected by distinct issues, such as defective mortar. For instance, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Sowerby at 1 The Rise, Ponteland, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE20 9LJ on 01661 825145.

Buyers in Gunnersbury should consider that a range of techniques are used in properties built throughout the ages. For instance, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. Consider renegotiating the price of the Gunnersbury property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
