HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Madeley and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Madeley property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a thorough analysis of the Madeley property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does wet weather have on our new Madeley building? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact heavy rainfall can have on your property is rarely paid due attention. For instance, damp stains around drainage suggest that the gutters are damaged. Blocked rainwater goods can result in penetrating damp.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property

and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Madeley. What will we need to think about when buying a house built in around 1760? What effect will the house's cruck frame have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers plan to buy a house with personality, like a Georgian terrace. Use of traditional methods, however, can often be problematic. Madeley property featuring traditional methods can be costly to maintain. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will my Property Survey look into this?

There are numerous issues associated with clay soil. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change, such as cracked plaster. 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.
