HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Haslington and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Haslington property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Haslington property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Can the Haslington Property Survey consider this?

Whether a house was built in 1707 or 2007, factors as varied as snow or dry rot can create significant expense for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in numerous issues. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Signs like warped window frames in the kitchen or separation of the skirting board from the floor can be early indications of very serious structural issues. There is a real benefit in booking a Haslington surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. 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.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would need to be wary of if planning to buy a converted flat in Haslington in conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the bearing may have with the home and its value. Property values will likely be inflated due to conservation areas retaining their original character.

Surveyors are expected inform you if the home is possibly classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by your solicitor. Unsympathetic developments to the building will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Haslington what does 'E9' include?

Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. Steps or landing areas which are settling or heaving is an example of this.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house buyers a clear understanding of the impact on the property individual defects may have. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.
