Home Buyers Survey in White City

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in White City and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the White City property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the White City property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would need to consider when buying a property in White City in a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in White City need to have local knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection may have on the home. House prices tends to be inflated due to them retaining original features. However many conservation areas are falling into a state for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Property surveyors are expected tell you if the property could be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the White City Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted by your solicitor. Unsympathetic extensions to the building should be commented on but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Stone block wall damage

Will a White City property with stone walls cause problems? Are there any potential issues that need to be investigated?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in White City are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the thirties house we are hoping to move into we think we noticed that there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a White City Homebuyer Report go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a White City Home Buyers Survey your surveyor will mention the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous state. This should include an overview of exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox and other concerns such as ascertaining the condition of any fixed electrical appliances such as electric showers or verifying the condition of a sample of switch gear. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest that an electrical check is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues for White City property? Will the Building Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house will have an impact. Issues range from severe changes in the water table level to considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a property. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a White City house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in White City, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Small areas 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.
