HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Stanwell and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Stanwell property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Stanwell property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact will rainfall have on a Stanwell building?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet this issue is ignored by home buyers. If you have investigated the house you are buying in on a clear day, issues may have been hidden.

In most cases, guttering issues are quite easy to fix. If not cared for, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a property valuation and a Reinstatement Cost included in the cost of the survey. To ascertain the property's value your surveyor will combine in depth understanding of the Stanwell market and other things about the property e.g. accommodation Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain other assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

It will be assumed that there is an absence of any major legal problems for example there being no outstanding claims. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to environmental concerns like local Stanwell industrial considerations, also being considered.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Can your HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant. Specific issues include soil swelling. 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.. 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! Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
