HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Rednal and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Rednal property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Rednal property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External walls

For the Rednal HomeBuyer Report what does 'E4 - Main walls' refer to?

Note that concealed elements will not be considered. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4. Foundations of non-structural walls which are weak or completely missing, for example, is included in Section E.

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. Less common than subsidence, but which can be as damaging to a home, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

Cracks that appear quickly may be a strong indication of subsidence. In extreme weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should I consider rainwater goods? Also, if there is necessary work, will they be disruptive to fix?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However wet weather and the effect it can have on Rednal homes are often overlooked by property buyers. As an example, "gushing" gutters strongly suggest that the downspouts are worth a closer look. Poor drainage can lead to cracked foundations and subsidence.

Luckily, problems with drains are generally easy to resolve, if caught early.However, the damage caused, where poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
