HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Fleetwood and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Fleetwood property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Fleetwood property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the Fleetwood Home Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Fleetwood home will have an impact. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Signs like sticking doors or separation of the skirting board from the floor can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Fleetwood, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. 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.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the home I intend to lease it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - does a Homebuyer Report in Fleetwood write anything on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Fleetwood Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor will typically make a note on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a poor condition. He or she will also report back on concerns such as examining the condition of fitted electrical appliances such as storage radiators or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Looking at any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the building will form part of the Homebuyer report in Fleetwood.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest that a Periodic Inspection Report be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Stone block wall damage

Can Ham Hill stone-built houses be a challenge. Which potential issues should we consider?

Ranging from Waddington Sandstone to Spynie Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.
