HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Great Sankey and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Great Sankey property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Great Sankey property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I am investing in a poor condition regency end of terrace property, is it necessary to spend a bit more on a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys are now called the Building Surveys. Select a Building Survey if you are considering the house outlined. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a post 1950s Great Sankey property made out of conventional construction materials. Bear in mind that certain caveats exist with any survey as the surveyor is not able to open up the structure of the building or comment on efficiency of gas installations.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What effect does clay soil have on a property's foundations? Does a Great Sankey House Survey discuss soil composition the report, and what defects will be reported on?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly, such as sticking doors. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect will wet weather have on a property in Great Sankey, and does our HomeBuyer Report mention it? And could it affect the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact wet weather can have on buildings in Great Sankey is overlooked. If you have only seen the new home in warm weather, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that downspouts are under performing include mildew or damp in the roof. Poor drainage can lead to damp and mould.

Fortunately, problems with drains are generally easy to remedy. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
