HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Liphook and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Liphook property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Liphook property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should we spend a bit more on full structural survey before acquiring an abandoned sixties cottage in Liphook?

Structural surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid century or later Liphook house assembled from typical construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is the appropriate one to choose in relation to the house mentioned.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building a written report (pdf and written copy) will be emailed (pdf format) and posted to the prospective buyer going through any frequently critical details concerning the state of repair of the home.

There will be a few limitations with any survey to be aware of as a local surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Liphook house e.g. removing roof space contents.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A builder mentioned subsidence may be an issue impacting the property. What possible solutions are to available to remedy this?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement generally happens in new homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months. In some older homes cracks appear in Summer which will close up again as the weather cools when the materials absorb moisture.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and slip down the incline. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor advise on the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

The surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the gas pipe route at the property, as well as gas affiliated fittings e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. The external fittings won't however be taken off. Gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
