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 .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Camberley. Can a RICS surveyor investigate indications of flooding damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a residential property through several routes, including loose patio doors. Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the home buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will my HomeBuyer Report look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. For example, minor wall cracks in the bathroom may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. A Camberley surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor examine the safety of the gas flues?

A will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected at the building, as well as gas associated fixtures like chimney breasts or flues. The Camberley chartered surveyor will not remove gas fittings and will not conduct any tests on the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.
