HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hartlebury and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Hartlebury property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Hartlebury property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Hartlebury HomeBuyer Report to mention this?

Factors from damp to low-grade construction materials can cause inconvenience for a property-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of numerous issues, with compression of layers of the sub-soil and consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss being relatively common. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable cracked plaster, to complete structural failure. A Hartlebury surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does a Hartlebury house surveyor check when the building is surveyed?

This often causes anxiety for purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many properties can be blighted by issues with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the dormers to the ceiling joists. Your Hartlebury surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we should check on when intending to buy a converted flat in Hartlebury near a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local council. Surveyors in Hartlebury must possess local knowledge of relevant local issues and any effect they have with the home. The value of homes will likely be enhanced which is down to them retaining their original character. However a large number have been neglected and are in a state for example - out of keeping extensions

RICS surveyors are expected report whether the building looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted by your conveyancer. Unapproved adjustments to the building may also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.
