Top tips for a Fulham Home Buyers Survey


Fulham is a classic example of a London area which has become gentrified in the last 50 years. The Victorian and Edwardian properties which used to accompany a mainly working class neighbourhood are now lived in by people with considerably more affluence. Waterfront properties are at a premium.

Fulham has streets full of period housing and it boasts a marvellous Tudor manor house in Fulham Palace. There are shared ownership properties available such as in the Dwyer House development.

Survey Tip 3

The vast majority of Fulham's dwellings, apart from those built near to the Fulham Palace Road cemetery, including in streets such as Everington Street and Averill Street, are subject to flood warnings and alerts.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
A red 3 marking in the HomeBuyer Report in relation to the electrics will mean you need to employ the services of a competent electrician in Fulham. A highly recommended firm is Windmill Electrics electricians Fulham SW6 who are based locally and NICEIC registered Electricians.
A Building Surveyor cannot comment on areas that are covered, concealed or not otherwise readily visible. There may be detectable signs of concealed defects, in which case recommendations are made in the report. In the absence of any such evidence it must be assumed in producing this report that such areas are free from defect. If greater assurance is required on these matters, it will be necessary to carry out exposure works. Unless these are carried out prior to a legal commitment to purchase, there is a risk that additional defects and consequent repair costs will be discovered at a later date.

London.pngGreater London is an area which contains London, the capital of the United Kingdom (which itself centres on the Cities of London and Westminster) and a number of surrounding boroughs which are administered as London boroughs and which are the overall executive responsibility of the Mayor of London. It contains a large number of constituencies, each represented by an MP and it should be noted that these are not the same as nor even always continguous with the borders of the boroughs.

Many parts of Greater London were originally administered by the counties which surround London and these counties are often called the home counties. Enfield, for example, used to be classed as being part of Middlesex, but is now near the northern border of Greater London. Greater London's borders often coincide with a zone of 'green belt': areas where it has been decided that open spaces, parks, forests and wildlife reserves should act as a buffer against urban sprawl. London has numerous landmarks, anything from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to Karl Marx's grave in Highgate Cemetery.

Greater London contains more than 9 million inhabitants, a number growing daily, and as this is approximately 1/7 of the population of the UK, it can be seen that Greater Londoners have a large influence on the rest of the country politically and this is enhanced by the concentration of skilled workers gravitating towards the capital.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A RICS Home Buyers Survey non-intrusively inspects both the external and internal structure of a property for matters which include these, among others; damp, subsidence, infestations, cracks and damage.

Whichever you opt for out of a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, they are both excellent for peace of mind if you are considering buying a property in Fulham.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

Should any issues be flagged up in the Home Buyers Survey, our surveyor will tell you what you need to do to get more in-depth advice on the extent and seriousness of the issue and what needs to be done to remedy it. 

If you are worried about a crack or cracks or indeed any other defects that you think your property in Fulham has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might snowball into many thousands of pounds further down the line. As an example of the costs, underpinning a property due to subsidence can be upwards of £10,000.

What happens if you choose the wrong survey for the type of property?

If once the Building Surveyor turns up to complete the survey, they feel the property does not suit the type of survey purchase, the surveyor will inform the client and the survey will not take place.

The scope of work of a HomeBuyer Report is different from that of a Building Survey. You an read the scope of work in a HomeBuyer Report here.

In most cases, the surveyor will agree to complete the appropriate inspection and then the client can pay the additional fee for the more appropriate survey.
