HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Perton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Perton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Perton property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home surveyor check for possible flood damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Perton and nationwide, is a serious concern for home owners. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Building Survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before water damage starts. Flood water can enter a Perton property through several routes, including badly fitted air bricks. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The home surveyor will usually recommend that the property purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

The Environment Agency recently gave a status update of 'Flood Alert' for River Thames from Datchet to Shepperton Green including Old Windsor, Wraysbury, Horton, Staines, Egham, Laleham and Chertsey, near Perton.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be vermin at the Perton home we're buying, but we are not certain - Should we get a house surveyor?

Properties will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. This matter should be taken seriously. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Treatment for insect infestation may include use of insecticides or destruction of tainted materials. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be an issue for Perton home? Does a Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a property's foundations can create difficulties. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Signs like a sticking door in the bathroom or minor wall cracks in the bathroom can be early indications of very serious structural issues. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered.
