HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Dymock and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Dymock property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Dymock property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The agent has suggested subsidence has been a problem. What subsidence information does the Dymock property survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle under their own weight.

Subsidence can sometimes be hard to detect because the issues which a Dymock surveyor will seek to find could comfortably be as the result of several factors. Inside the property, keep an eye out for sticking doors or windows.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree

roots taking the moisture out of the soil. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to investigate gutters? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Regular rainfall is common in Dymock and across the country, but the effect which rainfall has on homes is not given enough thought. As an example, rotten wooden gutters indicate that the gutters are blocked. This can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

Whether buying in Dymock or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy, if not neglected.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the house we are planning to move into it looked like there is old wiring. Does a Homebuyer Report in Dymock write anything on the electrics?

When preparing a Dymock Home Survey the surveyor will usually remark on the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This will include a by sight inspection of any revealed parts of the wiring or fusebox and other areas like examining the category of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of a sample of switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE suggest a Periodic Inspection be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
