HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Studley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Studley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Studley property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we should check out if planning to buy a home in Studley near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by local authorities. Surveyors in Studley must possess sufficient knowledge of local area issues and the effect they have with the property and its value. House prices will probably be higher owing to them retaining their original character.

Property surveyors are trained to report whether the location is or might be in a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic extensions to the property should be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a home in Studley and saw evidence of the driveway surface is broken and uneven, could this be evidence of subsidence? What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the home survey?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be rectified. In some older homes cracks appear in the Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials contract and draw in water. Subsidence-related cracks are normally wider at the top. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In a Studley HomeBuyer Report, what might a Condition rating 3 mean for roof coverings?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. Red, amber and green ratings give property buyers indicate to what extent each defect requires attention. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. Such issues can have a significant impact on a Studley residence's value. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. If a property does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

As part of Section E2, these elements are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. Signs of gravel erosion on the roof is an example of a Section E defect.
