HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Gaydon and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Gaydon property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Gaydon property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a house in Gaydon - What should we do?

Pests like cluster flies may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Gaydon. Regrettably, vermin can impact a home's worth and affect the health of residents. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Treatment for an infestation may include removal of infected furniture. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report review?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a building and its foundations. Home buyers can confuse subsidence with settlement. Settlement usually occurs in newer buildings, and is rarely a cause for concern. The structure's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. Collapsed water pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Gaydon surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that loose slates had been a concern - What does a RICS surveyor investigate during the survey?

This is a common concern for purchasers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Houses across Gaydon can be hiding serious issues with the roof. From wind braces to dormers, every element of the roof will be taken into account. The property surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Gaydon, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.
