HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Lansbury and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Lansbury property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Lansbury property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I need to look into when planning to buy a period property in Lansbury in conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local factors and the bearing may have on the home. Values is usually greater owing to the areas retaining original features.

Surveyors are trained to report if the planned purchase is/might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unauthorised developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Lansbury house and am quite worried that the building might be in danger of movement. What should we expect a Lansbury Property Survey to include, and what defects will be reported on?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Specific problems include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years, such as warped window frames in the garage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the property in Lansbury we plan to buy - What advice should we get?

Homes are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of insecticides.
