HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kings Langley and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Kings Langley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Kings Langley property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Kings Langley home and am concerned about the deterioration of the clay soil foundations. Can we expect the Kings Langley Home Survey to mention this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the

property, such as cracks along the kitchen ceiling. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. 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.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the building survey check signs of flooding?

Flooding in Kings Langley can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and house purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

English Heritage

We are planning to purchase a flat near Royal Palace (Site Of) , will this affect the property's value?

Royal Palace (Site Of) is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local importance often increase the desirability of an area. A RICS valuer will consider all local and regional criteria when carrying out the homebuyer report in Kings Langley. Visit the English Heritage site for more details on Royal Palace (Site Of).
