HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Northleach and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Northleach property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Northleach property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Will the House Survey consider this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Issues range from compression of layers of the sub-soil to swelling of the soil, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Signs like a sticking door in the bedroom or cracks along the bedroom floor can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Northleach, your surveyor will consider

the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a house in Northleach , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Will access to the attic be an issue?

Northleach property that are otherwise ideal can often hide roof maintenance problems. Any part of the roof or loft, such as ridge flashing, ought to be checked. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

The expense of re-covering asphalt, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A Northleach contractor with positive reviews can provide a quote.

Deteriorated timber

For the Northleach HomeBuyer Report, what does a an amber light rating mean for joinery and finishes?

Condition rating 2 suggests that the aspect of the property in question will need some work, but this may not be urgent. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report.

This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Both bargeboards, and general verge details, are reported on. Loose or missing tiles is an example of a Section E defect.
