HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Woking property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Woking property's general condition and it includes advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a house surveyor check for any flood damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a property in Woking will be secure against floods, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Woking area likely to affect the Woking house also enables the house surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get English Garden Wall bond maintenance tips for the Woking residence we're buying?

Brick-built properties demonstrate several benefits, but they will also suffer from numerous defects, including frost damaged pointing and crumbling mortar. One particularly serious issue is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. Anthony David at 10 Mount Rd, West Kirby, Wirral, CH48 2HL should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0151-625 2447.

A great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture of brick building may be found throughout England and Wales. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Woking? Could damaged drainage lower the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Woking and across the country, but wet conditions and the effect it can have on property in Woking are usually overlooked. For example, rusted iron elements indicate that the downspouts are at risk. Poor drainage can lead to hazardous mould.

Fortunately, this is generally easy to resolve.However, the damage caused, where untreated or poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
