HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Windlesham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Windlesham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Windlesham property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Windlesham surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report in Windlesham will include a valuation and also a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. When calculating the valuation your surveyor will use local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: accommodation The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use other assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any costly legal issues like the possibility of legal enquiries revealing legal issue that might affect value. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer. during the legal process.

Additional local Windlesham area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to environmental concerns like flood plains, also being considered.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented - saying there may be asbestos cement sheets in existence at the property. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials for example painted over ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in lagging.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to disturb it and professional advice should be sought without delay. On no account try to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Windlesham survey. Your Windlesham surveyor should mention potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Windlesham, and think we saw signs of vermin in the living room. Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Houses will often be free of major infestations. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Evidence may not be easy to find, 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.
