About Us

Home Buyers Survey in West Ealing

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in West Ealing and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the West Ealing property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the West Ealing property's general condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a local surveyor check out the state of repair of the gas heaters?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually look at any accessible parts of the system. This means things like the routing of any gas pipes for instance, as well as gas connected fittings such as balanced flues. Fittings or covers won't however be detached. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, should there be any worries about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, contact a gas safe engineer.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to order the full structural survey if buying a derelict period townhouse in West Ealing instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often (incorrectly) referred to as the Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, it is no longer available as it has been given a new title by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the correct term is now the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is sufficient for a post fifties unmodified house made out of conventional construction materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. A Building Survey is definitely the most suitable choice in relation to the house described. Following an exhaustive survey of the inside and outside of the house a written report (digital and written copy) will be forwarded to the purchaser running through any significant professional advice about the materials used for the construction of the property. Be aware that a number limitations are integral with any survey as a surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the house or assess serviceability of a boiler. Permanent external structures or buildings will also be inspected.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will your West Ealing Home Buyers Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house will have an impact. Issues range from uneven soil compaction to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. For example, widening cracks may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
