HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Axbridge and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Axbridge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Axbridge property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a detached house in BS26 - Axbridge for £266, 403. What considerations will a Axbridge RICS chartered surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Axbridge ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect property values e.g. the amount of ground rent or the number of bathrooms. It can help to analyse house values achieved in the nearby area for similar houses.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £257, 203 - £9, 200 less than £266, 403. The house/flat average was £251, 108. Orchard Barn, Banwell Road, Christon, Axbridge, Woodspring, Avon, BS26 2XX a detached property sold for £143, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as part of the service. Your chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A professional RICS chartered surveyor should go to the building as well as considering the long list of things that have a bearing on property prices.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it the right choice to commission a full structural survey prior to purchasing a shabby, Victorian live-work apartment near Axbridge?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. You should get a Building Survey in relation to the apartment referred to. A HomeBuyer Report is enough if buying a post 1950s unmodified Axbridge apartment of standard construction materials.

There are some limitations exist with any survey as a local surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the apartment for example, or survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Axbridge house and am worried about the implications of clay soil. Does a Axbridge Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Clay soil can create a number of issues for house owners. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a building. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Steps like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
