HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Heysham and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Heysham property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the Heysham property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Heysham property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Heysham house built in the late 30s, but it has clay foundations. Will the Heysham HomeBuyer Report consider this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Heysham buyers. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Drought, for instance, can have a measurable contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Signs like warped window frames in the garage or cracks along

the garage ceiling can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Heysham, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Heysham, and think we saw signs of bugs in the bathroom. Will a surveyor look into this?

Scare stories about home vermin are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as bed bugs as minor annoyances. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected home may not always be easy to identify.

For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include professional cleaning. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Conservatory

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect will a an amber light rating have on 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Building regulations and issues relating to correct planning approval are considered (e.g. is it a conservatory, an extension, or a 'sun room'?) will also be mentioned in the report. Steps which slope is an example of a Section E defect.

A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. This may not be urgent, however.
