HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Rugby and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Rugby property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Rugby property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What can be done to resolve subsidence if subsidence is found during the home survey?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. In the majority of cases, subsidence can be remedied. In some older houses cracks appear in Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials soak up moisture.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. For example, water leaking from a broken drainpipe or mains pipe will clear away soil which supports the structure. By reducing the volume of the subsoil, the earth is more readily displaced by the weight of the property. In serious conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning is a lengthy process used to stabilise the foundations of a property, and is required in around a quarter of subsidence matters. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively

be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the mid-century home I am possibly going to lease I saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - will the Rugby surveyor advise the wiring and fusebox?

During a Home Buyers Survey in Rugby the surveyor will mention the overall electrical system if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory condition. This will include an overview or examination of open or exposed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of possible problems relating to things like verifying the external installations, for example out houses with a power supply or any garden lighting. Reporting on any evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed will be part of the survey in Rugby.

Verifying the existence of any documents from any recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually be part of the survey in Rugby .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a concern of asbestos boards around windows being found in the home. What is asbestos and what are the risks?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials including patching compounds.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding qualities and it may be found in vinyl flooring. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break it. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. You should never try to handle it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Rugby HomeBuyer report. Your Rugby surveyor should note suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
