HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Camberley and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Camberley property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Camberley property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The agent mentioned subsidence may be a problem. What subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor examine?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses may suffer some degree of superficial cracks, particularly new-build properties or those with a recent extension In addition, some homes in Camberley are erected with a variety of materials. These will contract at different rates.

A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, impacting the property's structure in clay soil as water is drawn out of the soil by plants. On the inside, keep an eye out for doors and windows which stick.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning is usually

a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency house in Camberley.

Stucco is really smooth type of solid render. Commonly it is layered over brick that dries to a smooth and even finish. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is was often applied to Regency properties. Specialists say that it is very similar to any other render. It may contain lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Camberley Building Surveys commonly highlight defects for example trapped moisture culminating in the surface breaking. Other issues may be when the stucco has been taken down to ground level bypassing the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Resolving problems may be difficult as craftsmen are getting rarer.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would need to check on when buying a period property in Camberley near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Camberley surveyors need to have knowledge of relevant local considerations and any bearing may have with the property and its value. Property values is generally inflated due to them resisting change. However many areas are falling into a state of neglect for example - the removal front garden walls

Property surveyors will advise you if the house is possibly so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Camberley Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.
