About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Wallingford

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Wallingford and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Wallingford property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give comprehensive details of the Wallingford property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor take into account on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian detached house in Wallingford.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually dense render. Commonly stucco is layered over red brick that dries to a very smooth surface. The effect is very attractive and was often found on Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Wallingford Home Buyers Suveys sometimes report any number of problems e.g. trapped moisture culminating in internal damp problems requiring costly repairs. Other issues could involve sulphate attack from salts derived from wet bricks. Fixing problems with stucco may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Wallingford, and can a Wallingford surveyor check water damage, or if other properties have been affected?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and owning a property in Wallingford in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before water damage starts, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
