HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Bruton and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Bruton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works on the property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Bruton property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the period property we are hoping to lease it appeared that there is an old fuse board , does a Bruton Homebuyer Report write anything on any faults with the electrics?

During a Homebuyer Report in Bruton the home surveyor will usually add detail on the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This will include a non invasive view of the superficial sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as things like checking the state of repair of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage heaters or where to find the meter. Inspecting the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Bruton.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour suggested subsidence is an issue. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related matters will the Bruton Surveyor reveal?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses may suffer some degree of superficial cracks, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new house within a few months to make good any settlement cracks. This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high sand content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries, this organic matter will decompose. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
