Which Building Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Brixham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Brixham property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get an instant Brixham Homebuyers Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we investigate drainage? Will the Brixham surveyor report on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which wet conditions has on your home is rarely considered properly. For example, spalling masonry strongly suggest that the drainage systems are worth a closer look. Fortunately, problems with drains are usually easy to remedy.However, the damage caused, where poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Brixham , and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the loft be a problem?

Houses in Brixham that are otherwise ideal could unfortunately be experiencing roof maintenance problems, such as cracked and loose slates or tiles. From sheeting to tie beams, many parts of the roof and loft should be reported on, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Contact Roofing Agency of 1 Rocklands Ter/Lower Manor Rd, Brixham, TQ58HE on 01803 859045 for an estimate.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Brixham, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will the Brixham Home Survey consider this?

Factors from mould to groundwater flooding can cause significant expense for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues, with subsidence being a common example. 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, such as warped window frames in the drawing room. There is a real benefit in booking a Brixham surveyor to carry out your Home Buyers Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Isolated patches of wet and dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
