HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Speke and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Speke property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Speke property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a property in Speke , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our property surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

Speke residences in good condition could unfortunately be experiencing issues with the roof like. From slates to valley gutters, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

The expense of loft insulation, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A builder with professional accreditation can provide a quote.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Speke, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will the House Survey consider this?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Speke home's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. There is a real benefit in booking a Speke surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor inspect the serviceability of the gas heaters?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected for example, as well as gas affiliated installations for example - flue/chimney maintenance. External fittings or housings however, won't be dislodged. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, should you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.
