About Us

Home Buyers Survey in West Acton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in West Acton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the West Acton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the West Acton property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

In the HomeBuyer Report what are common Condition rating 3 defects for 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

The drainage system is inspected visually, where access is possible. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as blocked drains below ground. Loose or damaged gutters is an example. Severe defects impacting the home are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in West Acton are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent said that pooling water on the roof had been a concern. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the West Acton property surveyor look into during the survey?

This is often asked by buyers who know that homes can be hiding serious damage to the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. decking. The house surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of West Acton, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable builder in West Acton.
