HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Bermondsey and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Bermondsey property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Bermondsey property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What consequence does clay soil have on a home's foundations? What should we expect a Bermondsey Home Buyers Survey to include? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Bermondsey property, with subsidence being a common example. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs, such as warping of floorboards. Steps like checking

that the downpipe drains correctly can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a renovated farmhouse. Will maintenance costs be higher?

Many buyers would like to own a unique or characterful property. For houses in Bermondsey built before the 20th Century, age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Houses built with traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Materials suitable for the work may be required.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I get the full structural survey when looking into a modified fifties home in Bermondsey over a HomeBuyer Report?

Very Often called the Structural Survey by house buyers, this survey is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been given a new name by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the correct term is now the Building Survey. This is the correct survey if buying an unconventional home e.g. a property in poor condition house. It gives in depth and often serious details in relation to the houses standard of construction and repair as well as any defects a thorough inspection of the accessible areas of the house.
