Home Buyers Survey in Shepperton

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Shepperton and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Shepperton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Shepperton property's general condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will the Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco regency detached house in Shepperton.

Stucco is really just a type of solid render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a very smooth surface. Stucco render is highly aesthetic and was found on Regency houses. it can be prone to defect and Shepperton Building Surveys can report defects e.g. trapped water leading to internal damp problems.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may include attack from salts sucked out of bricks. Fixing problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour said subsidence is an issue. Is this a urgent risk, and what subsidence-related defects will my house survey inspect?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. The builder will likely return to a new house within a few months to make good any settlement cracks.

Non-structural cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler. Inside the house, keep an eye out for sticking doors or windows.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning is a lengthy process used to stabilise the foundations of a property, and is required in around a quarter of subsidence matters. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation. Should we get a surveyor?

Shepperton purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. Regrettably, vermin can be costly to fix and affect the health of residents.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to a serious infestation can include destruction of tainted materials. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
