Which Home Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Bridlington

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected if planning to buy a home built from standard building materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bridlington

    A Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Bridlington) will also be carried out by a RICS chartered surveyor and is more thorough. Choose this when buying a non standard property such as wood frame properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Bridlington

    This is an independent valuation . It is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Bridlington and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Bridlington property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Bridlington property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a 1988-built apartment in Bridlington and saw evidence of wall cracks in the living room. What are the risks, and what subsidence-related defects will my Home Buyers Survey look into?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle beneath the structure's own weight. In some older houses cracks may be visible in the Summer months which, as it gets colder, will close up when the materials soak up water, but these are in most cases of no concern.

In clay soil regions, drought can cause the water table to drop. This dries out, causing the clay to contract, pulling on the homes foundations and which causes subsidence. In extreme weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any

further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the property in Bridlington we plan to buy. Do we need a residential surveyor?

Any questions about pests affecting a Bridlington home may not be asked by the lawyer.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to insect infestation can include chemical treatment.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can be the source of maintenance problems for property in Bridlington. Can your Bridlington Property Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave, such as sticking doors. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like swift repair of any collapsed drains. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
