HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Brough and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Brough property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Brough property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the late 40s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the cause of many issues? Can a Brough House Survey investigate this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Brough house. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to soil movement, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. 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 Brough house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage.

A Brough surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. 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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is high levels of rainfall an issue in Brough? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which rainfall has on a residence is usually overlooked by property buyers. One indication that rainwater goods are at risk is spalling masonry. This can lead to water damage.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to resolve, if caught early. If poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages to opt for the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys don't actually exist anymore as the Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice if buying a post fifties unmodified Brough house of typical construction materials and methods. The RICS Building Survey would be the proper type of survey for the house described. Around 3 days following a thorough survey of all accessible areas a written report (digital and written copy) will be supplied to the purchaser setting out thorough and serious insight on the construction and uses of the house.

There will be certain limitations with a property survey to be aware of as a chartered surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Brough property e.g. removing the contents of cupboards.
