HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Rhoose and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Rhoose property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Rhoose property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Rhoose. What directions can a surveyor in Rhoose offer? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built property demonstrate several benefits, but they will also indicate both minor and serious issues. For instance, sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Kettyle Phillip of 51 Tower View, Croydon, CR0 7PY on 07958 222428.

For home purchasers in Rhoose seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the late 60s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the cause of many issues? Will my Rhoose Building Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property in Rhoose can have unwanted consequences. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Taking precautions, such as avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Gas flame

Will a surveyor check out the condition of the gas flues?

The local surveyor will locate and visually check the easily accessible parts of the system. This will include the location of the meter as part of the survey, in addition to gas associated gas installations in the house e.g. chimney breasts. Your Rhoose surveyor will not remove external fittings and he or she won't do any tests whatsoever on the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations or if you smell gas, call a gas engineer.

Gas regulations obligate landlords to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .
