HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kineton and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Kineton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Kineton property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick chimney on this Victorian house needs work - what should we do?

Kineton brick-walled properties can indicate considerable issues, from weathering to thermal movement. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Conner T Brickwork Ltd at 30 Burwell Rd, London, E10 7QG on 07961 513134.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Building Surveys on houses

I'm unsure about the reason for having the full structural survey if purchasing a shabby terraced home in Kineton as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally called a Structural Survey by many, it is no longer offered as it has been reclassified by RICS and the proper name is now the RICS Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a non period unmodified house made out of conventional construction materials. If you are buying an unusual house e.g. an older Kineton house - it is now the most suitable survey to choose to go for. After an exhaustive survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a formal report is posted and emailed to you outlining thorough and far-reaching insight in relation to the construction materials used on the house. There are one or two no go areas with any survey insofar as a local surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the Kineton property such as removing secured panels.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What impact does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Can your Home Buyers Survey consider this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Kineton home's foundations, forcing them inward. A Kineton surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
