Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Badsey and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Badsey property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Badsey property's general condition along with information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 18th Century converted barn. Will maintenance costs be higher?

The age of a structure can sometimes be an issue, and Houses employing traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Construction materials, such as suitable timber, may also need to be sourced. If you are uncertain, speak to the Badsey surveyor for more detail.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to investigate drainage? If there are issues, will they be expensive to fix?

Both in Badsey, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately this issue is often overlooked by home buyers. If you have investigated the new home on a dry day, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include rotten roofing elements. Whether buying in Badsey or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy, if not neglected. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent has said subsidence has been worth checking impacting the home. How could this affect the property, and what options are to available to resolve this?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. In most situations, subsidence can be fixed. In some older buildings cracks appear in the Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials soak up water, but these are in most cases of no concern.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a greater-than-average concentration of sand, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks or flooding. In severe weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
