HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Virginia Water and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Virginia Water property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Virginia Water property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a Virginia Water house and the seller's agent has suggested that it has been built with Slate. Are there any factors that need to be investigated, and what does the survey cover?

The cost of upkeep for stone-built houses can be higher than for more standard. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include erosion of pointing joints.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Buyers should consider that stone can have

a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Maintenance tips include. If you are planning to renovate, consider that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Traditionally built property

We are buying an older dovecot in Virginia Water. Will the home's age be an issue?

The age of a structure can create difficulties for an owner. Buildings featuring traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. Discuss this with the surveyor for more detail.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic caused problems at our old property. What aspects of the roof of the home will be considered?

Virginia Water property in good condition could feature roofing woes, like missing tiles. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the rafters to the collar ties. Your surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like asbestos cement removal, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A roofing specialist with positive reviews should be able to assist with a quote.
