HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Parson Cross and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Parson Cross property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension on the Parson Cross property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Parson Cross property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Parson Cross home buyers survey check for flooding?

It is estimated that over two million houses and flats are at risk of water damage caused by flooding; sensible owners and buyers in Parson Cross are right to consider precautions. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The house survey may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. lime-based plaster. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

No Parson Cross flood warnings have been found (source: Environment Agency).

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a property in Parson Cross. What will our building surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This is frequently addressed by Parson Cross surveyors. Many homes could unfortunately be experiencing issues with the roof like. From dormer windows to roof battens, many parts of the roof and loft should be reported on. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like loft insulation, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have read that clay soil can create problems for homes in Parson Cross. Can your Home Buyers Survey consider this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Parson Cross buyers. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including sub-soil shrinkage. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Parson Cross property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
