HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Hyde Park and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Hyde Park property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the Hyde Park property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give a thorough analysis of the Hyde Park property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can properties partially constructed with stone create upkeep problems for the buyer? What should we look in to?

Purchasers in Hyde Park should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Issues including erosion of pointing joints affect many stone-walled property in Hyde Park. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the building we plan to buy. Should we get a chartered surveyor?

Any questions about pests affecting a Hyde Park home may not be asked by the lawyer. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include traps.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can a Property Survey investigate this?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable minor wall cracks in the bathroom, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. 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.
