HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Heathfield and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Heathfield property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Heathfield property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to check guttering? Will the Heathfield chartered surveyor report on this? Also, if there are problems, will they be a hassle to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is not considered by home buyers. One indication that drainage systems are blocked is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, problems with drains are generally easy to remedy. If not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What effect does clay soil have on a home's foundations? What should we expect a HomeBuyer Report to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Heathfield can have unwanted consequences. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. For example, cracked plaster may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Heathfield, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. 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.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to acquiring an extended eighties basement maisonette close to Heathfield?

The Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its renaming in 2010 by RICS. Select a Building Survey for this home. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a post fifties unmodified maisonette assembled from normal construction materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. .
