HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Sunninghill and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Sunninghill property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Sunninghill property's state of repair as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the building we're buying, but we are not certain. Will a surveyor look into this?

Buyers should know that is not a requirement that the vendor to mention a pest issue. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of insecticides.

As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Sunninghill building with a loft conversion, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we investigate as part of the survey?

This is a common concern for Sunninghill buyers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many homes could unfortunately be experiencing roof maintenance problems. Any part of the roof or loft, such as tie beams, ought to be checked. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A builder with positive reviews should be able to assist with a quote. Contact Sunninghill Roofing of 2 Sunninghill Rd, Ascot, SL5 7BU on 01344 625801 for details.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to get a full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a doer-upper bungalow?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered by Surveyors and the new format given the name Building Survey is now available. When buying an unconventional Sunninghill property e.g. a dilapidated house, this is the right home survey. A Building Survey will outline in depth and often critical details concerning the homes construction and uses and any defects a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas. Permanent outbuildings will also be surveyed by the surveyor.
