HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Worplesdon and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Worplesdon property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Worplesdon property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a Worplesdon house and the estate agent has confirmed that it has been built with Cotswold stone. Which major defects should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Worplesdon property. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Worplesdon, what input does a property surveyor in Worplesdon give for homes constructed with Dutch bond brick? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-walled Worplesdon homes can show signs of considerable issues. For example, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and may require immediate attention. Contact Brickwork O J for a repairs estimate at 020 8398 3503 or 1 Fleece Rd, Long Ditton, Surbiton, KT6 5JP.

One example is Scottish bond or stretcher bond may be used in the construction of homes in Worplesdon.

If the Worplesdon surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Worplesdon RICS surveyor search for any flood damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of residents in Worplesdon and across the country, and property purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a Worplesdon home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The house survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The chartered surveyor may ask the seller about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
