HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Daventry and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Daventry property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Daventry property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

When investing in a shabby Edwardian mid terrace property in Daventry, should I get a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey was recently renamed as the Building Survey. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a mid 20th century of later unmodified Daventry home of conventional construction materials and methods. If you are buying a modified home like a period Daventry house, this is the most appropriate home survey to have carried out. Shortly after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, the chartered surveyors report will be sent to the client detailing any critical information about the standard of construction and repair of the property. There are one or two provisos with a property survey because a surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Daventry house for example removing the contents of cupboards.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The seller said subsidence may be a problem impacting the property. What subsidence issues does the Property Surveyor report on?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Home buyers can confuse subsidence with settlement. Settlement does happen in new homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. Many homes are constructed from a range of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the external brickwork, or the widening of existing cracks, may indicate subsidence. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, possibly as a result of lower-quality materials.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
