HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hilperton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Hilperton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Hilperton property's condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to check rainwater goods? Will the RICS surveyor report on this? And could it affect the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which rainfall has on your home is overlooked. Signs that drainage systems are at risk include mildew in the attic. Poor drainage can lead to water damage.

The good news is that guttering issues are quite easy to fix if dealt with quickly. However, if the drains are poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

House Prices

We are going to be investing in a house in Hilperton. What will the local surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Hilperton on a home buyers survey ?

Any number of issues which could affect the price of property like local employment opportunities or whether there is any subsidence. .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an impartial property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have read that subsidence in Hilperton may be worth checking. What subsidence information does the Hilperton Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. Heave is less common, and may result from the removal of a tree or shrub and the plant stops drawing moisture from the earth.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Hilperton. Collapsed water pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.
