HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Redhill and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Redhill property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Redhill property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found cracks along the lounge ceiling, is this subsidence? What are the risks, and what subsidence-related defects will my Building Survey investigate?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. New buildings in Redhill and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible.

Merely superficial cracks not caused by subsidence may be filled in and repainted. In serious weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations

from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

Gas flame

Does a Redhill surveyor check the safety of the gas installations?

A RICS chartered surveyor will visually check the accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the mains gas installation as part of the Redhill survey, in addition to gas connected installations e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. Any external fittings or housings won't actually be taken off. Gas can be unsafe and if there are any worries relating to gas installations at all, , contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe Register firms in Redhill include Homewood Heating of 40 Kings Mead, South Nutfield, Redhill, Surrey Tel. 01737 823888 and N Blyth Plumbing & Heating of 6, Fairhaven Road, Redhill, Surrey Tel. 01737 760438.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent said that dry rot had been a concern - Will access to the roof be difficult to arrange?

Redhill residences in otherwise fine condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems. From gables to tie beams, the roof structure as a whole will be considered, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as a complete replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor can provide one. Contact Mason A & Sons Roofing Ltd of 145 Brighton Rd, Redhill, RH1 6PS on 01737 769888 to request a quote.
