Which Building Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Egham

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected when buying a property constructed from standard materials such as tile and brick, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Egham

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Egham) will also be carried out by a RICS surveyor but is more exhaustive. Opt for this for non standard e.g. box frame construction or older properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Egham

    This is a professional valuation . This is often chosen by mortgage free buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Egham and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Egham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Egham property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1880s residential property with stone walls. Are there any problems that need to be investigated? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Defects such as stone faces affect many stone-walled Egham buildings. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Purchasers renovating Egham buildings should be aware that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. To source stone quarried in Egham, you can contact local suppliers.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Queen Mary Reservoir, Ashford Road, Laleham, Staines, Surrey, TW18 1QF for details. Call 01784 241035 for more information.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect should heavy rain have on our new Egham building? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

I find it odd that the effect which rain has on a home is often overlooked. Signs that drainage are worth a closer look include rusted iron elements. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, this is quite easy to remedy. Where this is untreated or poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a building in the region Norlands Lane, Thorpe, Tw20 near Norlands Lane and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including hazardous waste material. Thousands of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people throughout the UK including Egham. Concerns include methane gas generation. Health problems like congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Egham will notice structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Runnymede Local Authority and advise you .
