HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Reddish and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Reddish property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension on the Reddish property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Reddish property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I need to on guard for if purchasing a flat in Reddish inside a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Reddish must have local knowledge of relevant local issues and the bearing may have on the property. Property Prices will be significantly higher which is down to them being preserved.

Property surveyors can be expected to inform you if the planned purchase is possibly so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Reddish Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unapproved extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may be reported in the Reddish survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Reddish property built in the early 90s, but it has clay foundations. Will a HomeBuyer Report look into this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a property's foundations can create difficulties. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. 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 moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Building Surveys on houses

We are buying an extended Victorian cottage property in Reddish, should I commission a full structural survey?

Structural surveys are now called Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a mid 20th century of later unmodified Reddish house assembled from normal building materials. The Building Survey is certainly the proper survey to choose for the house mentioned. Once a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts of the house, a formal report is supplied to the buyer outlining any critical information on the construction and uses of the home. There are certain provisos with any residential survey insofar as RICS chartered surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Reddish house for example removing roof space contents.
