RICS Homebuyer Survey Report, Whetstone, London, N20

A homebuyer survey was chosen by our client, as the property was a 1960’s end terraced house built on non-traditional construction known as wimpey no fines and this caused some concern. This form of construction involves the use of solid shuttered concrete walls. Our inspection revealed no major defects or issues, providing our client with reassurance and peace of mind.

I contacted Webster’s surveyors regarding a property and from the first phone call to the last I found this company... efficient, polite and professional. They are very reasonably priced, they attended the property quickly and the report was also with me quickly. The report was thorough and very easy to understand, and has helped me greatly with the issues found, which will determine if I proceed or not, potentially saving me thousands of pounds.Cannot recommend enough.read more

Buying a house is a significant step in your life. 

At Websters Surveyors, we’d like to help you make the right decision. If you buy something that is faulty, you’re normally return it to the shop for a refund. You can’t do that with a house so it’s sensible to satisfy yourself that there are no major defects before you commit to the purchase. 

Most buyers when viewing houses are looking at where their furniture would fit, possibly dreaming of the new kitchen they’d like to install or how their family could live in the increased space. When our Home Survey Chartered Surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers inspect a property, they’re checking it’s health. Is there hidden penetrating damp? Does the drainpipe contain asbestos? Are the roof rafters, trusses, joists and purlins suffering from dry rot or wet rot, risking the structural stability of the house? Was the extension carried out compliant with Building regulations? 

We look at the boring technical bits to make sure that you are fully informed as to the potential risks or costs involved with maintaining and improving a property you are buying.




statutory tax valuations


Tax implications on property can be costly, and therefore the right advice can go a long way. For example, with Inheritance charged at 40% above the £325,000 threshold (correct as at time of publication), a mere £25,000 difference in value could reflect an extra £10,000 in tax liability. 

We sometimes hear of Estate Agents valuing properties for tax purposes. However HMRC often don’t accept their opinions but are unlikely to challenge them if they believe it has increased the tax payable. Most estate agents are not regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors so do not need to comply with RICS guidance on tax valuations that is aimed at protecting the consumer. Using an RICS Regulated firm like Websters Surveyors is far more likely to provide a robust report to help you.

HMRC are far less likely to challenge a report carried out by a firm of Chartered Surveyors, especially if the individual Surveyor is an RICS Registered Valuer. RICS Registered Valuer is a designation given to Surveyors who have proven competence in Red Book valuations such as for tax purposes, to our regulatory body, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Our highly experienced team of Chartered Surveyors and RICS Registered Valuers have undertaken numerous valuations to aid assessment of tax. They are all RICS Registered Valuers. 

Whether you are a property professional and may need valuation for Capital Gains tax purposes or the executor of an estate and need valuation for probate or Inheritance Tax purposes, we can help. 




local knowledge



Most of our West London Valuations are undertaken by our Director Richard Stacey who prior to joining us in 2019, spent about 20 years working for West London firms. He’s provided hundreds of property valuations in areas like Hanwell, Ealing, Acton, Northolt, Uxbridge and elsewhere across West London. 

Having a local knowledge can help a Surveyor. It means we know the areas we are valuing in, helping improve accuracy in reporting. 

Two other members of our team have also carried out hundreds of valuations and Surveys across West London. 

We’d like to be your Surveyor. Our reports are provided quickly, at a reasonable cost, are high quality and are written wherever possible in plain English making them easy to understand.
