HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Edingale and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Edingale property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Edingale property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have been told that clay soil can be an issue for houses in Edingale. What should we expect a Property Survey to include?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Edingale buyers. Specific problems include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. In Edingale's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Edingale property's foundations, forcing them inward. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused

by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a property - What advice should we get?

Edingale purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Regrettably, pest problems can seriously reduce the value of a property and carry serious health risks. Signs may not be obvious. For example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for an infestation may include removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your RICS surveyor.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the building we are hoping to purchase, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses - will a surveyor advise the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Edingale the RICS surveyor should usually report on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a hazardous condition.

This should include a non invasive examination of any revealed areas of the wiring or fusebox as well as concerns such as confirming that the supplementary bonding is in the correct place. Looking at any documentation from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician on the building should be part of the survey in Edingale. .

Examining the evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE advise a Periodic Inspection Report be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if letting out).
