Home Buyers Survey in Willen

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Willen and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Willen property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Willen property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a RICS chartered surveyor inspect the condition of the gas mains supply?

The qualified RICS surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters at the property, as well as gas connected appliances or installations like the possibility of asbestos. A Willen qualified RICS surveyor will not remove fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests of any kind on the functionality of the gas system. Gas can be fatal and if there are any worries about gas or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about pests in the area - Will a house surveyor look into this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to an infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Stone block wall damage

Can Kentish Rag stone-built property be a challenge. What defects must we watch out for?

Poor use of coating can often cause problems for buildings in Willen with stone walls , and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Repair advice often includes replacing missing or badly worn stones.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get London brick repair tips for the Willen property we're going to buy?

Brick-built Willen residences demonstrate several benefits over structures built with irregular stone. Unfortunately, they also experience distinct issues. This could be anything from sulphate expansion to frost damaged pointing. One problem often found is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Contact Cox D J for a repairs estimate at 020 8391 2156 or 69 Hemsby Rd, Chessington, KT9 2DY.

As an example, running, or stretcher, bond. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
