HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Hatton Park and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Hatton Park property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Hatton Park property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the argument to get the full structural survey if purchasing a abandoned end of terrace bungalow near Hatton Park as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often still called a Structural Survey by some, it is no longer offered as it has been given a new name by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. A Building Survey is now the most appropriate home survey when buying a modified home such as a tatty Hatton Park house. It will provide full and frequently critical information in relation to the houses construction and uses in conjunction with any defects after a thorough inspection of the accessible parts.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a home in Hatton Park and saw the driveway surface is broken and uneven, could this be evidence of subsidence? Is this a severe danger, and what subsidence information does the Hatton Park Building Survey include?

Movement of a building on a structural level is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. In addition, some homes are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the outside walls, or cracks which were stable, but are showing signs of fresh movement, may indicate subsidence. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. 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 Hatton Park surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Hatton Park chartered surveyor look for flooding damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are in danger of floods, and property buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the home survey may advise on urgent repairs.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Fortunately, no flood warnings were found for Hatton Park, according to the Environment Agency.
