HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Much Hadham and which is cheaper?

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

If the Much Hadham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Much Hadham property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Much Hadham property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Much Hadham, and the property's foundations have been built on clay soil. Can my House Survey investigate this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects, with moisture changes in the soil and consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss being relatively common. In Much Hadham's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable minor wall cracks in the kitchen, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the mid-century home we are hoping to move into We noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - does a the Much Hadham surveyor advise electrical defects?

When conducting a Much Hadham Building Survey a qualified surveyor should usually report on the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. This will include a non invasive examination of the open sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other areas e.g. verifying the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or whether there is an off-peak /on-peak supply. Reporting on any evidence of any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as site clearance)

Homebuyer Reports include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and also a Reinstatement Cost as part of the report. To ascertain the correct valuation your surveyor will relate to local Much Hadham market factors and other considerations relating to the property e.g. general condition The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will make certain other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues for example building regulations having been complied. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Further Much Hadham assumptions like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Much Hadham environmental issues like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
