Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Lee On The Solent and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Lee On The Solent property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Lee On The Solent property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Lee On The Solent, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Can the Home Survey investigate this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Specific issues include swelling of the soil. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects. , such as cracks along the bedroom floor. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like keeping standing water on the property in check. Small areas of wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care

must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Lee On The Solent surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the report. To be able to determine the correct valuation your surveyor will combine local property market knowledge and other factors about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Your Lee On The Solent surveyor will also consider construction methods and use key assumptions e.g. the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Lee On The Solent area conjectures like the property being insurable, are made in addition to environmental problems like busy roads, which will also be factored in.
