HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Weybridge and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Weybridge property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Weybridge property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I commission a full structural survey prior to acquiring a derelict sixties cottage in Weybridge?

Full Structural Surveys have a new title and are now called Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a mid century or later unmodified Weybridge house made out of normal construction materials and methods. The RICS Building Survey is certainly the most appropriate survey for the house described. After a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings a written report (digital and written copy) will be posted to the purchaser outlining any serious advice in relation to the materials used for the construction of the house.

There are one or two limitations exist with any residential survey - the surveyor is not in a position to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the house or assess the serviceability of energy sources.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Weybridge, what directions can you offer for a 60s house constructed with English bond walls? Is age a factor?

Brick-built Weybridge buildings demonstrate several benefits compared to other types of construction. Unfortunately, they also be affected by a range of defects, such as horizontal cracking. For example, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and may require immediate attention. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Anthony David, 10 Mount Rd, West Kirby, Wirral, CH48 2HL on 0151-625 2447 for a quote for repair work.

For example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we need to check out when buying a converted flat in Weybridge near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local council. Weybridge surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local issues and the relation they have on the property and its value. House prices are usually significantly higher which is down to them being in their original state.

RICS surveyors are expected inform you if the home is/might be classified as such and Section I of the Weybridge Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.
