Subsidence Inspection

The surveyor will look for signs of subsidence 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.

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.

Some areas near to Wendover might be affected by existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines. A recent Environmental Search Report taken out for a property in Viridian Square, Aylesbury, HP21 7FX revealed that it was built within 4km of existing or proposed wind farms or wind turbines. The location of wind farms can have an impact on the surrounding area due to the size of the turbines and the inconvenience of where the turbines are placed.

Do I really need a survey?

Surveys are very useful. They can help you avoid any expensive surprises that may pop out in the future, as well as giving you peace of mind that the property you are buying is structurally sound.

With the information from the survey you might reconsider whether to buy the property or try and renegotiate the price, if you find it needs lots of repairs, it is reasonable to ask for some money of the price. Alternatively, you might ask the seller to fix the problems before you buy it.

The last resort is to pull out from buying the property altogether.
