A Home Buyer Survey - What does it cover?

Our RICS Surveyor, during a Home Buyers Survey in Frimley, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, inspects both the inside and the outside of your property and searches in particular for subsidence, damp, infestations and any cracks or other damage to the property. The procedure is non-intrusive.

Subsidence Inspection

The surveyor will look for signs of subsidence during the structural survey within the property paying special attention to signs of cracking internally and to the external walls. As a rule, if you can fit the width of a 50p into a crack in a wall, it could be a sign of subsidence. Our surveyors will flag in their reports if they feel you need to instruct a structural engineer to review a crack further.

Damp Testing

There are numerous reasons why a property can be affected by damp. The Surveyor will take samples in the property using a damp meter and assess the condition of the property to provide a report on whether they feel the property is affected by damp. Further investigations maybe suggested including getting a damp and timber specialist.

Identify Infestations

Woodworm, mice, rats and ants are infestations that your don't want in your home. Your surveyor will look for visible signs of mouse droppings, damage to floor boards (when visible) and damage to wiring, carpets or skirting boards

Asbestos

Prior to its banned use, asbestos was a commonly used building material, particularly as part of cement products, floor tiles and roofing shingles. Asbestos was used for its durability and resistance to heat and is commonly found in artex ceilings, garage roofing and chimney stacks. Your surveyor will confirm if they suspect any materials in the property have asbestos and if so, suggest getting an asbestos surveyor to intrusively taking samples of the asbestos to confirm the type. A damp meter is used in a HomeBuyers Report Frimley survey and the readings included within the report.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it. 

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Frimley has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Solar panels are a becoming a common feature with properties in Frimley. A RICS surveyor cannot provide advise or test solar panels.

In a Building Survey on Regent Way, Frimley, Hants, GU16 8NT, it was noted the presence of solar panels and the client was advised to get their solicitor to confirm the ownership of these as they are often leased from a thrid party company.

The drains of a property should be inspected to confirm they flow to a main line sewer or a cesspitt.

In most cases, the drains will be connected to the mains drainage and there should be an access chamber visible on the site.
SurreySurrey is located in the south east of England and is well known for its high property prices and leafy areas. Guildford is the county town, however Surrey County Council can be found just up the A3 in the neighbouring town Kingston Upon Thames. It was in Dorking in Surrey at the White Horse where Charles Dickens wrote much of his Pickwick Papers and apparently based many of the characters on local people

The University of Surrey can be found in Guildford, however Surrey also hosts the Royal Holloway University of London (Egham), University of Law & Kingston University.

What if your surveyor misses something which ends up costing £1,000s?

Our RICS surveyors are required to have indemnity insurance which matches the value of a property they're inspecting.

That means that if they miss something vital which later turns out to be an expensive defect and one which they should have spotted, you can claim the costs of remedy from them.
