HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Brislington and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Brislington property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Brislington property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have learnt that Brislington homes built on clay soil can experience problems. Can my Brislington Property Survey consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property will have an impact. Issues range from groundwater level variations to soil swelling, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. For example, small cracks in the bedroom floor may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building can help maintain clay-rich soil,

but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Gas flame

Does a Brislington surveyor give details on the condition of the gas supply?

Yes. Your surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the meter is in an escape route as part of the Brislington survey, in addition to gas associated appliances e.g. the possibility of asbestos. External fittings or housings won't be dislodged. Needless to say, gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the building I am meaning to buy, the agent said that there were damaged electrical sockets, does a Brislington Homebuyer Report advise electrical defects?

When conducting a Homebuyer Report in Brislington your RICS surveyor will typically make a note on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include a by sight check of open or exposed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as potential areas for concern such as verifying the type of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from any recent PIR carried out by an electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Brislington.

The IEE advise a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition is carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting).
