Which Home Buyers Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Ryhope

    The Homebuyer Report should be chosen if buying a property made of conventional materials i.e. tile and brick, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Ryhope

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Ryhope) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS accredited surveyor and is more comprehensive. Opt for this for unconventional e.g. cellared or older buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Ryhope

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. This is typically chosen by cash buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Ryhope and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Ryhope property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Ryhope property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Ryhope house surveyor inquire into any flooding?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage can all result in extensive flooding damage, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for homes in flood-risk areas. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the HomeBuyer Report may make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Ryhope? What should we expect a Home Buyers Survey to include?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including compression of layers of the sub-soil. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Signs like a difficult-to-open lounge window can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Ryhope, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. 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.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of white asbestos flooring materials at the house. What is asbestos and what are the remedial options?

Asbestos is a potentially fatal substance. Some types may be in building materials for example boilers.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in boiler cupboard. Most asbestos was imported from the US. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre will not kill you.

If discovered, one must be careful never to displace the asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately. Removing it is dear but must be carried out by professionals. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a Ryhope home survey. Your surveyor will mention potential asbestos and will inform you of the options.
