HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Sanderstead property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Sanderstead property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish Diagonal bond guidelines for upkeep - can a property surveyor in Sanderstead assist? Is age a factor?

Brick-built Sanderstead properties feature several advantages compared to other building materials. Unfortunately, they also be subject to numerous defects, ranging from signs of movement to weathering. One particularly serious issue is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. For more information, contact a local builder, Artisan Brickwork Ltd of 51 Norton Pk View, Sheffield, S8 8GT on 0114-274 7302.

As an example, shiner bond or header bond may be used in the construction of properties in Sanderstead, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Sanderstead? Could damaged guttering lower the property value?

Both in Sanderstead, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which heavy rain has on your home is not given the attention it deserves by buyers. If you have only seen the house in dry conditions, issues may have been hidden.

Signs that drainage are worth a closer look include rotten roofing elements. This could then result in lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

Fortunately, guttering issues are generally easy to repair, if identified early. Where this is disregarded, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a Sanderstead house. Should we get a surveyor?

Scare stories about building pests are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as mice as minor annoyances. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. Signs may not be obvious. For example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to an infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.
