House Survey

Rentokil homebuyer reports offer specialist pre-purchase woodworm, rot and damp surveys to potential buyers of any style and age of building. We provide a full inspection of the property, offering a range of damp, timber decay or woodworm treatment solutions.

If a valuation survey has identified any timber or damp problems or if your lender or mortgage provider feels the property is of an age when timber or damp defects could easily exist, Rentokil can help to correct these problems.

Purchasing a home is the most expensive item you will buy in your lifetime and protecting yourself from unforeseen defects that could be very expensive to fix once you’ve purchased the property is vital.

Pre-Purchase Report for Woodworm, Rot & Damp Problems

Our full, thorough and professional survey of the property includes:

    • Inspection of external defects that could cause dampness or timber decay both now & in the future
    • Move furniture, lift carpets in areas that we feel floor timbers could be at risk of either woodworm, wet or dry rot (with vendors permission)
    • Check internal walls for signs of dampness, attempting to isolate causes before reaching a conclusion
    • Provide detailed survey reports (normally within 4 working days of the survey) so you can make a qualified decision on your property purchase
    • Supply our recommendations for the most appropriate solution to fix any problems encountered
    • Provide a fixed price quotation to help your negotiation process

Our surveyors are qualified to identify infestations by wood boring insects, rising damp, penetrating damp, fungal decay (wet rot fungus and Sepula Lacrymans - dry rot). We can also carry out separate surveys for cavity wall ties.

Many clients purchase properties intending to change the structural layout (i.e. remove walls for greater living space, converting lofts or cellars) we can assist by advising on any damp proofing measures that are necessary to ensure your property does not suffer damp issues.

All our work is covered by long term Guarantees, which can be passed on to new owners, assisting you in the onward sale of your property.
