HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Frimley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Frimley property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted cracks along one external wall, is this subsidence? Is this a severe risk, and what subsidence-related defects will my property survey investigate?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be put right. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture builds up in the soil, causing the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. One such issue is that soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that flat ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer may become unstable and begin to slide downward. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows which stick.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Beech and

sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the home we are meaning to lease, it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, will a Frimley survey report on the electrics?

When conducting a Frimley Home Buyers Survey the home surveyor will usually add detail on the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsafe state of repair. This will include a by sight inspection of the open parts of the wiring or fusebox as well as possible problems relating to things like examining the condition of fitted electrical appliances such as storage radiators or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE advise a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Frimley home with a loft conversion - What should we look into during the survey?

Homes in Frimley in good condition may be exposed to difficulties with the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from valley gutters to sheeting, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Roof maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist.
