HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Farnham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

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

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Farnham property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) detached house in Farnham that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact just smooth type of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick that sets to an even finish. It is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian houses. Stucco is often problematic and Farnham surveyors can show issues for example trapped moisture resulting in problems with damp. Other potential problems may include sulphate attack from salts absorbed from bricks. Resolving problems can be dear as the skills are becoming rarer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're planning to buy in Farnham. Is there a flood risk, and will the house surveyor investigate any flooding damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Independent), and owning a property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the survey report may advise on needed maintenance.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a possibility of asbestos wallpaper present in property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious substance of several naturally occurring materials. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including patching compounds.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in vinyl flooring. Technically all forms are ultimately pernicious and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to displace the asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently. Never try to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will report on suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.
