HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Stonebridge Park and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Stonebridge Park property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Stonebridge Park property's condition along with information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Stonebridge Park House Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I need to check out if planning to buy a building in Stonebridge Park inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection may have on the building. Values tends to be significantly higher due to the areas being unspoilt. However a large number have been neglected and are in a state of neglect e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors can be expected to advise you if the property could be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved modifications to the property will also be reported but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Stonebridge Park, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will the Stonebridge Park HomeBuyer Report look into this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. 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 a difficult-to-open living room window can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. A Stonebridge Park surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. 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.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the building in Stonebridge Park we plan to buy - What should we do?

Property purchasers in Stonebridge Park should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, for example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If you strongly suspect an issue with vermin, or any pest, speak to your Stonebridge Park surveyor
