Home Buyers Survey in Storrington

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Storrington and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Storrington property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations on the Storrington property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Storrington property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the property we're buying, but we are not certain - Is a Property Survey advisable?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, pest problems can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Treatment for pests may include professional cleaning and removal or excision of affected timber.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos cement being found in the building. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and Should we still go ahead with the purchase?

Asbestos is a potentially fatal silicate material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as rain water goods.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in gutters. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to break the asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your Storrington surveyor should mention possible asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Damaged Render

What problems will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Storrington.

Stucco is in fact just dense solid render. Normally stucco is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and even finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is common on some Victorian houses. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Storrington can highlight defects e.g. horizontal hairline cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints. Other issues could be when moisture beneath flashings which results in detachment. Re-applying problems can be expensive as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.
