Which Property Survey should you choose?

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Farnham Common

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Farnham Common) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor but is more detailed. Opt for this option for non standard property such as wood frame or older buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Farnham Common and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Farnham Common property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Farnham Common property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the building in Farnham Common we plan to buy. Do we need a surveyor?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. This problem should be taken seriously. Evidence may not be easy to find. As an example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies.

Treatment for insect infestation may include removal of infected furniture. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor check out the serviceability of the gas flues?

Your will visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like gas (and oil heaters) at the home, as well as gas connected fixtures such as balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. Should there be any external fittings or housings they will not however be taken off. Most people are aware that gas can be deadly and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the mid 90s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the cause of many issues? Can the Farnham Common Home Survey investigate this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Farnham Common home will have an impact. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including sub-soil shrinkage. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Signs like warped window frames in the kitchen or warping of floorboards can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Steps like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
