HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Sunbury and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Sunbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Sunbury property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Sunbury Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests. Do we need a house surveyor?

Properties in Sunbury are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Treatment for vermin

may include chemical treatment. Your RICS surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to upgrade to full structural survey prior to purchasing a substantially modified regency cottage in Sunbury?

Structural surveys are now reclassified as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if buying a non period unmodified Sunbury home made out of normal construction materials and methods. You should get the Building Survey for the house referred to. You should be aware of a number limitations exist with any survey as a RICS surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the Sunbury house nor can they inspect under floor (unless accessible).

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled Sunbury property. What issues must we watch out for?

From Farmington Stone to Portland Cap Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like staining will vary with the particular type of stone. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property in Sunbury, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Maintenance tips include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.
