HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in East Boldon and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the East Boldon property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the East Boldon property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to consider drainage? Will the East Boldon HomeBuyer Report give details on this? If there is damage, will they be costly to fix?

I find it odd that the impact wet weather can have on houses in East Boldon is ignored by purchasers. If you have only been to the new home in dry conditions, defects may not have been obvious. Blocked rainwater goods can result in water damage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in East Boldon, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. What should we expect a Home Buyers Survey to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house will have an impact, with subsidence being a common example. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a East Boldon house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. There is a real benefit in booking a East Boldon surveyor to carry out your House Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the house I expect to move into I saw that there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a East Boldon survey write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Homebuyer Report in East Boldon a qualified surveyor will typically make a note on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a dangerous condition. A professional surveyor will also concerns such as reporting on the state of the fitted appliances such as heaters or the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD). Looking at any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician should form part of the survey.
