HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Cobham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Cobham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Cobham property's general condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a danger of flaky asbestos roof tiles in existence at the building. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials such as soil vent pipes. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in rain water goods.

All forms are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Its existence does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

If discovered, one must be careful never to break the asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately. You should not endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors

will not test for asbestos during a Cobham building survey. They will mention the risk of asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is damp weather an issue in Cobham?

Regular rainfall is common in Cobham and across the country, but the effect which heavy rainfall has on property in Cobham is not given enough thought by property buyers. If you have only seen the property in warm weather, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that drainage systems are a cause for concern include water pooling below gutters.

Luckily, drainage problems are usually easy to remedy. If untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

House Prices

There is a flat in KT11 priced at £322, 022. What things does the local surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Cobham ?

There are a great number of factors which could positively or negatively affect property values such as the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the number of bedrooms in the property. One method is to consider flat values recorded in Cobham for comparable properties. The mean flat price completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £303, 222, which is £18, 800 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average factoring in houses and flats was £895, 912. 10, White Lion Gate, Cobham, Elmbridge, Surrey, KT11 1AQ recently sold for £64, 000 .

In order for you to get a formal property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as an inclusive part. A chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A RICS surveyor will always attend the property as well as considering the multiple location variables affecting property prices.
