HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Brinklow and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Brinklow property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Brinklow property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Bath stone-built houses be a challenge. What should we look in to, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Totternhoe Limestone to Waddington Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to buildings in Brinklow, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Chimney stacks

On a Brinklow HomeBuyer Report, what might a an red light rating mean for chimney stacks?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the Brinklow property's construction. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any property buyers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property. Quite a common example is loose, missing or deteriorated masonry. These elements are inspected by eye using binoculars where appropriate. An apartment may not need such an inspection.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the House Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house in Brinklow can have unwanted consequences. Specific problems include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. For example, widening cracks may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Brinklow, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
