HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Park Hill and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Park Hill property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Park Hill property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Park Hill property but are worried about pests. Will a property surveyor look into this?

Park Hill homes will often be free of major infestations. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for insect infestation may include traps and removal of infected furniture. If you believe cockroaches, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Park Hill builder suggested subsidence could be a problem impacting the property. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor reveal?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence.

In regions with a high concentration of clay soil, a long period of dry weather will cause the moisture level of the soil to fall. This dries out and shrinks the clay, pulling on the homes foundations and which can result in movement. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to have the full structural survey when looking into a dilapidated forties property near Park Hill as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Often referred to as the Full Structural Survey, this survey is no longer offered as it has been given a new title by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a non period Park Hill property of typical building materials. A RICS Building Survey is definitely the appropriate survey to opt for the property mentioned. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough site survey of the accessible parts, a formal report is forwarded to the purchaser going through thorough and crucial details in relation to the construction and uses of the house. There are certain restrictions with the survey insofar as the surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Park Hill building e.g. undoing electrical fittings. See the survey differences article for further information on property surveys.
