HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Stanwick and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Stanwick property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Stanwick property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we would need to be conscious of when purchasing a home in Stanwick near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local councils.

A Building Surveyors need to have local knowledge of local considerations and any relation they have on the home. House prices will probably be enhanced which is down to them retaining their original character.

Surveyors can be expected to inform you if the planned purchase could be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be advised but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues for Stanwick property? Will your Stanwick Building Survey look into this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Signs like warped window frames in the living room can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the mid-century home we want to buy we noticed that there is an unsafe electrical system, will the surveyor advise the electrics?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Stanwick a surveyor will typically remark on the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. This will include a general view of the open sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of areas e.g. verifying the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician should be part of the survey.
