HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Onslow Village and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Onslow Village property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Onslow Village property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor give details on the condition of the gas installations?

Your surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the mains is connected at the property, as well as gas associated appliances or installations like fireplaces. External covers will not be taken off. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer without delay.

Regulations stipulate that all landlords have to complete appliance and installation inspections every year and punishments for failure to comply are severe .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Onslow Village? Will my HomeBuyer Report look into this, and what defects will be reported on?

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 sub-soil shrinkage to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Signs like warped window frames in the drawing room can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older property in Onslow Village. Will the age of the residence be a problem?

For houses in Onslow Village built before the 20th Century, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Onslow Village homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, Traditional building materials may be required. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. Contact your RICS surveyor for further advice.
