About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Penylan

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Penylan and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Penylan property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Penylan property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Penylan, what advice would you give for a 70s property with Sussex bond brick? Does render make a difference?

Brick-walled Penylan apartments can experience considerable issues, including frost damaged pointing and spalling. One serious matter is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Landmark Brickwork Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Willow Farm/Moor La, Staines, TW19 6EQ or 01784 440815.

Buyers in Penylan should consider that a selection of different courses and brick making techniques can be found across the UK. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits in upgrading to the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report if buying a doer-upper property?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered by RICS Surveyors and the new more detailed survey which has been classified as the Building Survey, is now available. When contemplating the buying of an unconventional property e.g. an extended house in Penylan, it is now the correct RICS survey to have carried out. Around 3 days following an exhaustive survey of any accessible parts, the RICS surveyors report will be delivered to the client running through any significant advice about the condition of the property. There are certain limitations with a Building Survey because your surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Penylan property for example removing roof space contents.
