HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Headington and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Headington property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Headington property's condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be an issue for Headington property? Can the Headington HomeBuyer Report consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Issues range from sub-soil shrinkage to soil movement, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. There is a real benefit in booking a Headington surveyor to carry out your Home Buyers Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. 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.
