Home Buyers Survey in Egham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Egham and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Egham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Egham property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it best to go for a full structural survey before investing in a dilapidated Victorian house near Egham?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed as the Building Surveys. If you are buying a modified Egham property like a period house - this is now the best choice of home survey. Once an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a non prescribed format of report will be posted to the prospective purchaser running through in depth and significant insight in relation to the construction and uses of the house. There are certain limitations with a Building Survey to consider as a RICS surveyor cannot (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the of the Egham building e.g. moving heavy furniture.

House Prices

I am planning to acquire a house in Egham (TW20). The asking price is £525, 311. What things does the Egham RICS surveyor allow for on a home buyers survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect property values ranging from the amount of service charges payable to whether there are any conservation area infringements. It is useful to benchmark prices values achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

This means house prices paid in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £509, 411, which is £15, 900 less than the price you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £456, 424. The Coach House, Coopers Hill Lane, Englefield Green, Egham, Runnymede, Surrey, TW20 0JX a detached property was purchased for £600, 000 .

The best way for you to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. A RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick chimney maintenance tips, can a Egham property surveyor help?

Brick Egham converted property will indicate a number of issues. The property surveyor should report on these along with recommendations. One problem often found is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Grantham Tim at 85 Dalehouse La, Kenilworth, CV8 2EP should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01926 857173.

A great deal of variety of brick building can be found across Egham. For instance, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks.

If the Egham surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

Quite a common example is a dropped, rotating or leaning arch. All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here. Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. Such issues can have a significant impact on a Egham property's value.
