HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in St Werburghs and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the St Werburghs property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a thorough analysis of the St Werburghs property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the mid-century home I am interested to move into it appeared that there is an unsafe electrical system - does a the surveyor write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in St Werburghs your RICS surveyor should usually remark on the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in an unsatisfactory state. The RICS surveyor is required to concerns such as the electricity mains supply. Reporting on any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the survey in St Werburghs.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a St Werburghs HomeBuyer Report consider flood damage?

Flooding in St Werburghs can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and home purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a residence through several routes, including loose patio doors.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood alerts were found for St Werburghs.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations create issues for St Werburghs property? Will a House Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Factors from wet rot to acid rain can cause high maintenance costs for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. In St Werburghs's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a St Werburghs home's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. There is a real benefit in booking a St Werburghs surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Parcels of wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
