HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Clarborough and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Clarborough property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Clarborough property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour said that a leak had been a concern, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does a Clarborough surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Local property in good condition could unfortunately be experiencing issues with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the sheathing to the collar beams. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Clarborough, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the house surveyors will look for a range of signs, including being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

The expense of replacement of a failed dormer, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Will my HomeBuyer Report look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Whether a home was built in 17011 or 20011, factors as varied as wood boring insects or mould can create significant expense for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in numerous issues, with groundwater level variations and consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss being relatively common. Drought, for instance, can have a contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. 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. Steps like immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw a sixties house we want to acquire it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets - will a Homebuyer Report in Clarborough go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When conducting a Clarborough Home Buyers Survey a qualified surveyor should add detail on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This should include a general check of open or exposed areas of the wiring on top of things like checking the type of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey in Clarborough.
