HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Tilehurst and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Tilehurst property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Tilehurst property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the property we plan to buy - What advice should we get?

Tilehurst properties are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious, for example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Treatment for an infestation may include professional cleaning

or removal of infected furniture. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Tilehurst surveyor search for flooding?

The lives of many homeowners in Tilehurst and across the UK have been affected by flood damage, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for properties in flood-risk areas. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in the old property. What will our Tilehurst building surveyor look into during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by property surveyors. A large number of properties can often hide dry rot, among a range of other roofing issues. From the rafters to the roof battens, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Factors like a poor asphalt covering are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Tilehurst, but it is a health and safety necessity. A Tilehurst roofing specialist can provide an estimate. Contact Avenir Roofing of Serving Tilehurst on 0800 163955 to request a quote.
