HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Chertsey and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Chertsey property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Chertsey property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older cottage in Chertsey. Will repairs costs be higher?

Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. Built in around 1444, Hardwick Court Farm Barn in Chertsey is an example of a traditional Medieval-period barn.

House Prices

I want to acquire a property in Chertsey (KT16). It is on the market for £184, 217. What things does a surveyor evaluate during a RICS valuation ?

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Can your Chertsey Home Survey investigate this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects, with subsidence being a common example. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. For example, warping of floorboards may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like swift repair of any collapsed drains can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Isolated patches of very dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
