HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Egham and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Egham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Egham property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick chimney maintenance tips, can a Egham property surveyor help?

Brick Egham converted property will indicate a number of issues. The property surveyor should report on these along with recommendations. One problem often found is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Grantham Tim at 85 Dalehouse La, Kenilworth, CV8 2EP should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01926 857173.

A great deal of variety of brick building can be found across Egham. For instance, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks.

If the Egham 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.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour said that leaks in the roof had been a concern. Will access to the loft be time consuming to arrange?

Residential property in Egham with no other major issues may be exposed to roofing woes, like torn or punctured damp-proofing. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar ties, ought to be checked. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Egham, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the property surveyors will look for a range of signs, including literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable builder. Call K P Services of 75 Holbrook Meadow, Egham, TW20 8XA on 01784 470696 to request a quote.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Egham Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco coated Victorian detached house in Egham that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is dense render. Normally it is layered over brick that dries to a very smooth surface. The effect is very attractive and is common on some Regency properties. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to animal fibres to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Egham Homebuyer Reports frequently detail issues which can include trapped moisture culminating in damp problems

Another example of problems may involve attack from salts absorbed from underlying brickwork. Re-covering problems with stucco may be costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming rarer.
