HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bridport and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bridport property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Bridport property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have learnt that Bridport houses built on clay soil can experience problems. Does the Bridport Home Survey cover this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Clay soil can create several issues for home owners. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Bridport home's foundations, forcing them inward. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the building I am interested to purchase, I noticed that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, will a Homebuyer Report in Bridport go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Bridport Home Survey the RICS surveyor should usually remark on the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. A professional surveyor will also provide detail on potential areas for concern such as verifying the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Bridport.

The IEE strongly advise that a Periodic Inspection Report be conducted every 10 years (5 if letting).

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a farmhouse in Bridport. Will the home's age be an issue?

A property's age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Bridport homes constructed with traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could result in longer-term maintenance obligations.If you have doubts, speak to your building surveyor for further advice.
