About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Heston

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Heston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Heston property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Heston property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor check the state of the gas heaters?

A surveyor will visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) at the building, in addition to gas related gas fittings in the home, for instance chimney breasts or flues. A Heston RICS chartered surveyor won't remove any fittings and surveyors are not qualified to run any tests on the appliances or system. Gas can be dangerous, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a home proximate to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. non-hazardous refuse. Nobody wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include heavy metals. Health concerns like spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Heston will find structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to Hounslow Local Authority and advise you .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I would be advised to consider when intending to buy a flat in Heston near a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by local councils.

A Building Surveyors need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and any relation may have with the property. Values is generally higher due to the areas retaining original features. However many of them are falling into are falling into a state of neglect for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors can be expected to advise you if the planned purchase is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of your Heston Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are conducted by your conveyancer. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be reported, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.
