About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hanworth

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hanworth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Hanworth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Hanworth property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property in Hanworth built Ham Hill stone. What should we look in to, and what will the survey reveal?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor warned us that access to the roofing could be something to worry about - Which issues relating to the roofing will be reported on when the survey is performed?

Hanworth property in good condition may be exposed to bowing beams, among a range of other roofing issues. Every element should be checked, e.g. slates. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Roof upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Hanworth roofing specialist for the job itself. Speak to Liversidge John of 10 Uxbridge Rd, Feltham, TW13 5EE on 020 8384 9865 for more information.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £439, 325, which is £16, 700 less than the amount being asked. The combined house/flat average was £400, 097. 17, Queens Road, Hampton Hill, Hampton, Richmond Upon Thames, Greater London, TW12 1DU a detached house sold for £312, 000 .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property in Hanworth but are worried about pests. Will a RICS surveyor look into this?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Hanworth home may not be raised during the conveyancing. This matter should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. Speak to a pest control specialist, such as Destrodent Pest Control Ltd, 57 Park Road, Hampton Hill, Middlersex, TW12 1HX on 0208 941 2301, to discuss remedies.
