A Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Yeading, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property. The procedure is non-intrusive.

Subsidence Inspection

The surveyor will look for signs of subsidence within the property paying special attention to signs of cracking internally and to the external walls. As a rule, if you can fit the width of a 50p into a crack in a wall, it could be a sign of subsidence. Our surveyors will flag in their reports if they feel you need to instruct a structural engineer to review a crack further.

Damp Testing

There are numerous reasons why a property can be affected by damp. The Surveyor will take samples in the property using a damp meter and assess the condition of the property to provide a report on whether they feel the property is affected by damp. Further investigations maybe suggested including getting a damp and timber specialist.

Asbestos

Prior to its banned use, asbestos was a commonly used building material, particularly as part of cement products, floor tiles and roofing shingles. Asbestos was used for its durability and resistance to heat and is commonly found in artex ceilings, garage roofing and chimney stacks. Your surveyor will confirm if they suspect any materials in the property have asbestos and if so, suggest getting an asbestos surveyor to intrusively taking samples of the asbestos to confirm the type.

If they find any issues during the inspection of your property in Yeading, our surveyor will flag them up in the Home Buyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them. An example of this is where the surveyor finds evidence of woodworm infestation. 

If you are concerned about any other defects with the property you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

Survey tips for properties in Yeading


Yeading is an area of West London in Hillingdon Borough on the outskirts of London. It remained undeveloped until the 1920s and after the second world war, the Yeading Lane estate was built, which was redeveloped in the 1960s and 1970s.

You can find many semi-detached and terrace houses from this period in roads such as Owen Road, Barnhill Road, Kingshill Avenue and Atlee Road.

New build developments include the apartments in Hertford House, Taywood Road and the detached houses in Arcon Drive.

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.

What is the difference between the Building Survey and the HomeBuyers Report?

There are two types of survey, the HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey. The Building survey is essential for larger or older properties that have had any structural alterations from their original build whereas the HomeBuyers Report is suitable for properties of standard construction and properties that are under 70 years old.

Both Surveys cover the same aspects they are just go into different depths within their report. The Building Survey is the highest visual assessment you can get and goes into a through structural investigation into the construction and fabric of the property, this is a very detailed report and comes with explanations and photos (if the surveyor provides photos in their reports - some don't) and the HomeBuyers report gives a good general review of the property to help identify any defect however this is formatted in a traffic light format, red highlighting any major issues, amber less so and green everything is fine.
