HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Chobham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chobham property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Chobham property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need London brick repair tips, can a Chobham property surveyor help?

Brick-constructed homes feature several advantages. However, they can also indicate a range of defects, such as inadequate damp-proofing. These issues will be mentioned in the report, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Princes Construction may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 020 8926 7094 or 125 Princes Rd, Buckhurst Hill, IG9 5DX.

Brick-constructed property are found in many homes built in this country, leading to a good selection of methods and styles. One example is Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two

long bricks between every short one. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A neighbour warned us about pests on the street - How do we investigate further?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This danger should be taken seriously.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Remedies to pests can include professional cleaning and removal of infected furniture. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange. Speak to an expert, e.g. Bar Pest Control, 39 St Anns Close, Chertsey, Surrey, KT16 9DX on 0193 257 0817, for more detail.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this house is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our RICS surveyor look for signs of flooding damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of residents in Chobham and across the country, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a home through several routes, including air bricks. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
