HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Clun and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Clun property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Clun property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Clun Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor mentioned subsidence is a problem affecting the flat. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence information does the Clun Building Survey include?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a house and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement will often occur in more modern houses, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months. Most homes are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Cracks that appear without warning could indicate subsidence. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning

is a lengthy process used to stabilise the foundations of a property, and is required in around a quarter of subsidence matters. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a building in Clun. Will access to the attic be a problem?

This is often asked by buyers in Clun who know that homes can be blighted by roof maintenance problems, such as damp. Any part of the roof or loft, such as valley gutters, ought to be checked, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder for the job itself.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the argument to opt for the full structural survey when looking into a dilapidated terraced property in Clun as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Although conventionally described as Structural Surveys by many home buyers, they have been reclassified as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if buying a non period Clun house of typical construction materials. The Building Survey is certainly the most relevant survey in relation to the house mentioned. Two to three days after an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts, a written report is supplied to the prospective purchaser summarising in depth and relevant details concerning the construction and uses of the home. There are certain limitations with a property survey insofar as the surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Clun property for example undoing electrical fittings.
