Home Buyers Survey in Uxbridge Common

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Uxbridge Common and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Uxbridge Common property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Uxbridge Common property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a flat proximate to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. industrial rubbish. Of course nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include chemicals like dioxins. Health concerns such as birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will consider any structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Hillingdon Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the home we are planning to buy it looked like there is old wiring. Does a Homebuyer Report in Uxbridge Common write anything on electrical defects?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Uxbridge Common a qualified surveyor will typically add detail on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a dangerous state. The RICS surveyor should also issues like the location of the fuse board .

Verifying the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey. A check for the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey in Uxbridge Common .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) suggest a Periodic Inspection is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems for Uxbridge Common house? What should we expect a Home Buyers Survey to include, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Uxbridge Common can have unwanted consequences. Specific issues include soil movement. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as cracks along the living room floor. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. Isolated patches of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Gas flame

Will a surveyor look at the safety of the gas heaters?

Your qualified surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the mains gas installation where relevant, as well as gas related fittings like ventilation of flue (if blocked). A Uxbridge Common RICS surveyor won't remove any external fittings or housings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests on the system or appliances. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations legally require landlords to conduct appliance and installation inspections yearly. Non compliance penalties are severe .
