HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Rusholm and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Rusholm property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Rusholm property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any things we would be advised to be aware of when intending to buy a converted flat in Rusholm in a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor must possess relevant knowledge of local issues and the effect may have with the property. House prices tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them resisting change. However many areas have fallen into a state of neglect for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are trained to note if the planned purchase looks to be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Rusholm Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unauthorised developments to the building should be reported in the Rusholm survey but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues for Rusholm home? Will a Home Buyers Survey look into this?

Whether a home was built in 1708 or 2008, factors as varied as wood boring insects or fungal decay can create difficulties for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in numerous issues. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. 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! A Rusholm surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the house we are hoping to buy we noticed that there is an old fuse board - does a Homebuyer Report in Rusholm write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Rusholm Building Survey your surveyor will add detail on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. A Chartered surveyor is trained to possible problems relating to things like where to find the meter.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Rusholm.
