Looking for a Home Survey ? Which survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Kingston Park and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kingston Park property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Kingston Park property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor has mentioned subsidence might be worth checking. What subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor examine?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the property. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs where the ground level moves upwards.

In some cases, subsidence or movement is challenging to identify because the issues which a Kingston Park surveyor will seek to find could easily be caused by a number of factors. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Kingston Park surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.

Damage resulting from flooding

When planning to purchase in Kingston Park, should we be worried about a flood risk, and will the chartered surveyor inquire into possible flood damage?

The lives of many home owners in Kingston Park and across the UK have been impacted by flooding damage. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a residence 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. appropriate drainage, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

The Environment Agency state that no warnings have been for Kingston Park.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the mid-century home I intend to buy it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a the Kingston Park surveyor report on electrical system condition?

When performing a Home Survey in Kingston Park your surveyor should usually comment on the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a dangerous state. A professional surveyor is required to give detail on issues like verifying the condition of any fitted electrical appliances like storage heaters or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Verifying the location of the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey in Kingston Park.

The IEE strongly advise that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting).
