  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Wokingham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Wokingham property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension on the property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Wokingham property's state of repair along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will a Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a spar dash rendered (stucco) detached house in Wokingham that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact dense render. Usually stucco is applied to underlying brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco render is highly grand in appearance and was common on some Georgian properties. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water. it can be prone to defect and Wokingham Building Surveys frequently highlight defects for instance trapped water leading to problems with damp

Another example of problems associated with stucco could include sulphate attack from salts sucked out of bricks. Re-coating problems may be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming rarer.

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor go into detail on the serviceability of the gas flues?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation for instance, as well as gas related gas fittings in the home such as the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. External fittings or covers however, won't be detached. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially fatal, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe firms in Wokingham include Fowler Combustion Company Ltd of 35B, Rose Street, Wokingham, Berkshire Tel. 08456444701 and Aztec Complete Services Ltd of 8 Ivanhoe Road, Hogwood Industrial Estate, Finchampstead, Wokingham, Berkshire Tel. 08453 450245.
