Which Property Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Farnham Royal

    The Homebuyer Report is the right choice when you are buying a home made of conventional building materials i.e. brick and tile, not dilapidated and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Farnham Royal and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Farnham Royal property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Farnham Royal property's general condition as well as including information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we investigate downspouts? Can damaged downspouts decrease our property's value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which high levels of rainfall has on houses in Farnham Royal is often overlooked. As an example, damp stains around drainage may indicate that the gutters are a cause for concern. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have read that clay soil can be the source of maintenance problems for property in Farnham Royal. Will your Home Buyers Survey look into this?

Whether a home was built in 17010 or 20010, factors as varied as insect infestation or rising damp can create problems for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in numerous issues. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable separation of the skirting board from the floor, to complete structural failure. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Farnham Royal, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home.

Window frame

In a Farnham Royal HomeBuyer Report what effect can a an amber light rating have on 'E5 - Windows' ?

For a Farnham Royal house, one example could be missing drip caps on windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent each defect requires attention. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however.
