It is also advisable to obtain an in-depth pre purchase specialist timber & damp report and general home condition survey carried out by damp specialists, especially if problems have been highlighted in a surveyors home buyers report. It is important to have a property checked for rising dampness, prior to exchanging contracts, so the cost of any timber treatment & damp-proofing repairs can be negotiated with the vendor.

If a more in-depth damp and timber survey has been requested by your lender, home buyer or building surveyor, it may seem like a worrying prospect, especially if you are a first time buyer, but be assured, this is normal practice and should not discourage you from your house purchase. It is important for you to ensure that your new property is free from any damp and timber defects which could get worse and depreciate your investment.

If you have been informed by the vendor that previous damp proofing & woodworm treatment has been carried out, which is guaranteed, you and your solicitor are advised to check exactly which areas of the property have been treated, if the company is a registered  member of the Property Care Association (PCA) and if the contractors guarantee is valid. Never assume that the property is entirely covered and check that the damp-proofing & woodworm timber treatment company is still trading.

Damp experts will expose timbers and lift floor boards wherever possible, take random moisture reading, using a calibrated moisture meter and inspect the property externally to check for building defects. You will be issued with a comprehensive report, detailing our surveyors findings and what remedial work is recommended, including images and a floor plan.
