HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Dulverton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Dulverton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Dulverton property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency home in Dulverton which we wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact just a specific type of render. Commonly it is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth flat finish. The effect is very grand in appearance and is often found on Georgian homes. it can be problematic and Dulverton Building Surveys commonly reveal defects for example, when movement of the underlying wall causes cracking of the surface. Other potential problems could result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads above such as cracking under the eaves. Re-applying problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are getting harder to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the Property Survey look into this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Dulverton buyers, with groundwater level variations and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. For example, minor wall cracks in the drawing room may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation.

Taking precautions, such as immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. 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.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the mid-century home we intend to lease, the agent said that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; does the surveyor advise electrical defects?

When performing a Dulverton Homebuyer Report the RICS surveyor will mention the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair.

This should include a non invasive (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection of any uncovered sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as other things, for example checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances, for example heaters or reporting on the condition of a sample of switch gear. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed should be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) strongly advise a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) is carried out every ten years (5 if renting out).
