HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Bootle and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Bootle property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works on the Bootle property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Bootle property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor report on the safety of the gas mains supply?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually look at the accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the meter is in an escape route where relevant, as well as gas affiliated fittings such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). Any gas fittings won't actually be dislodged. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1977-built home in Bootle and found that the dining room door frame was skewed. What are the risks, and what subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report reveal?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses experience some minor cracking.

Subsidence can be caused by a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer can sometimes become unstable and start to slip downhill. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
