HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Windlesham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Windlesham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Windlesham property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home surveyor consider flooding damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and house purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The property surveyor may ask the residents if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Windlesham and are looking for a residence constructed with Sussex bond brick. What input does a Windlesham property surveyor give?

Brick-walled structures in Windlesham can be affected by distinct issues. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey, with repair advice also supplied. One serious matter is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Contact Anthony David for a repairs estimate at 0151-625 2447 or 10 Mount Rd, West Kirby, Wirral, CH48 2HL.

One example is English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented - saying there may be asbestos cement sheets in existence at the property. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials for example painted over ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in lagging.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to disturb it and professional advice should be sought without delay. On no account try to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Windlesham survey. Your Windlesham surveyor should mention potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.
