HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Wraysbury and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Wraysbury property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension on the Wraysbury property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Wraysbury property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a residential property and the agent has informed us that it has been built with Wooton stone. What should we be particularly aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Portland Fancy Beach Limestone to Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like efflorescence will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Wraysbury properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in the construction of doors and windows. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Wraysbury should be able to supply local stone.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the home we intend to acquire we noticed that there is an old fuse board , will a Wraysbury Homebuyer Report go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Wraysbury Home Survey a qualified surveyor will typically report on the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor state. Your surveyor should also provide detail on issues like where to find the consumer unit.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey. Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed will be part of the survey.

The IEE strongly advise a periodic test be conducted every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a house in Wraysbury, does the HomeBuyer Report check flood damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Flooding in Wraysbury can cause severe damage to both contents and property. Both house buyers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Wraysbury house in question is in danger.

Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including poorly installed doors.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the house surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The house surveyor will usually recommend that the house buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.
