HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Tedburn St Mary and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tedburn St Mary property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Tedburn St Mary property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could wet weather have on our new property in Tedburn St Mary? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

I find it odd that the impact damp weather can have on buildings in Tedburn St Mary is not given enough thought. Signs that rainwater goods are worth a closer look include spalling masonry, and may lead to collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank. Whether buying in Tedburn St Mary or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy, if not neglected, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Tedburn St Mary home built in the mid 40s, but it has clay foundations. Will a Tedburn St Mary Home Buyers Survey look into this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Tedburn St Mary house. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the lounge to warped window frames in the lounge. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. 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.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it the right choice to spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to investing in a defective, seventies live work flat in Tedburn St Mary?

The Full Structural Survey is now reclassified as the Building Survey. Our advice would be to choose a RICS Building Survey for the flat you are contemplating. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a 60 year old or less Tedburn St Mary flat of conventional construction materials i.e. brick/tile. Bear in mind that certain limitations come with a Building Survey as your surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the property or assess serviceability of a boiler. Also flat conversions add complexity. A surveyor can only advise on the flat itself, though the surveyor may provide an opinion communal parts of the property e.g. any alarm system. For more details and a survey comparison see the following article.
