HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Nayland property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Nayland property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't see the reason to order the full structural survey when considering a doer-upper end of terrace townhouse in Nayland as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Commonly described as a Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, this survey is no longer available and this most technical survey has been re-titled by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is now the Building Survey. This is the correct survey to choose when buying a modified property, for example an unloved house. A Building Survey details in depth and salient information in relation to the property's standard of construction and repair along with any maintenance needs after a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have heard that Nayland residential property built on clay soil can experience problems. Will your Nayland Building Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property will have an impact. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. Patches of waterlogged 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.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would need to check on if intending to buy a property in Nayland near a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

A Building Surveyors need to have local knowledge of relevant local considerations and the bearing may have on the home. Prices will probably be higher because of them being preserved. However many areas are falling into a state e.g. the removal front garden walls

Surveyors are trained to advise if the house is/might be is designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are conducted as part of the legal process. Unconsented developments to the property should be reported in the Nayland survey but these are really more a investigated by your legal adviser.
