HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Stapleford property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Stapleford property's condition as well as an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Stapleford properties at risk, and does a chartered surveyor consider water damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Heavy rain, drains blocked with sewage or soil and burst pipes can cause flooding; sensible owners and home buyers in Stapleford are right to consider precautions. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the

HomeBuyer Report. The chartered surveyor will usually recommend that the home buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a converted barn. What consequences will the cruck frame have on repairs?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a Tudor home. Older construction methods and materials, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Structures featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Stapleford home built in the mid 40s, but it has clay foundations. Can a Stapleford House Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Signs like a sticking door in the bathroom can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house.
