HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Surbiton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Surbiton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Surbiton property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations cause problems? I am buying a house in Surbiton. Will the HomeBuyer Report look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. For example, cracks along the bathroom ceiling may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Surbiton, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. 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.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to order a full structural survey if purchasing a defective sixties townhouse near Surbiton rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes still called the Full Structural Survey, this survey is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been renamed by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient for a post 1950s unmodified house of conventional building materials. The Building Survey is definitely the proper survey to go for the house mentioned. After an exhaustive inspection of any accessible parts of the house, the surveyor's formal report is sent to the purchaser specifying in depth and far-reaching insight about the construction and uses of the home. You should be aware of a few limitations come with a property survey as a Surbiton surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the building for example, or comment on efficiency of gas installations.
