Need a Building Survey? Which survey is the right choice?

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if buying a home constructed from conventional materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bush Hill Park

    The RICS Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Bush Hill Park) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor and is more comprehensive. Choose this for non standard e.g. wood frame homes.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Bush Hill Park and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Bush Hill Park property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Bush Hill Park property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Bush Hill Park Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have read that clay soil can be the source of maintenance problems for property in Bush Hill Park. Can a Bush Hill Park Home Survey investigate this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Bush Hill Park buyers, with subsidence being a common example. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a home's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. During the

HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. 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.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Bush Hill Park. Is there any Scottish bond advice we should be aware of??

Brick-built residential property do benefit from many advantages, but they will also be affected by numerous defects, such as lack of a damp proof course. These issues will be mentioned in the report, with directions for remedy. One frequently reported defect is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Matthews M, 65 Westwood Rd, Tilehurst, Reading, RG31 5PN on 0118-942 4862 for a quote for repair work.

A range of courses arrangements and colours of brick building can be found across Bush Hill Park. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons to order the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer offered by RICS Surveyors as a newer technical survey which is given the name Building Survey is now available. When looking into purchasing a modified Bush Hill Park property e.g. a tatty house, this is now the most appropriate property survey. It sets out thorough and critical professional advice on the homes state of repair in conjunction with any maintenance needs a thorough inspection of the accessible areas. Permanent outbuildings should be reported on on the Bush Hill Park property survey.
