HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Endon and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Endon property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Endon property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Endon property's condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Will your House Survey look into this?

Clay soil can create numerous issues for house owners. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects. , such as a difficult-to-open kitchen window. A Endon surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish Stretcher bond guidelines for upkeep - can a surveyor in Endon assist? Does brick decay faster in Endon weather?

Brick-constructed converted property in Endon demonstrate several benefits compared to other building materials, but they can also experience a range of defects, such as sulphate attack. For instance, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and should be taken very seriously. Contact C S N Builders for a repairs estimate at 01235 832504 or 4 Midwinter Avenue, Milton, Abingdon, OX14 4XA.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick.

Defective door frame

For the Endon HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

The surveyor will confirm that all external doors work, but will not force open any without keys. Generally, the thresholds of doorways are also surveyed, checking that access is level, water is excluded from leaking into the property, etc. Draughts around outside doors is an example of this.

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the home's construction. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a house or flat does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.
