HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Oxshott property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Oxshott property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Oxshott, and think we saw signs of insects in the bedroom. What advice should we get?

Pests like lice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Oxshott. Regrettably, vermin can impact a home's worth and put your health in danger. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase,

check with a specialist how long treatment will take. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when purchasing a property in the region a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. domestic waste disposal. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health problems for example downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Oxshott will consider any structural problems resulting from the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Kingston upon Thames Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor check the condition of the gas installations?

Your chartered surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the meter location/position at the building, as well as gas affiliated gas fittings in the home like flue/chimney maintenance. Should there be any external fittings they won't actually be dislodged. The system won't be tested at all. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially unsafe, should there be any worries about gas fittings or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas engineer.
