HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Upton Upon Severn and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Upton Upon Severn property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Upton Upon Severn property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have learnt that Upton Upon Severn properties built on clay soil can experience problems. Can your Building Survey investigate this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Clay soil can create numerous issues for house owners. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Taking precautions, such as immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Isolated patches of very dry soil can just

as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Upton Upon Severn Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will refer to experience of property in Upton Upon Severn as well as other factors about the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also examine materials used and will use other assumptions, for example there being no major problems. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings. The valuation is also on the basis that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal issues e.g. no troublesome covenants. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, such as use of communal grounds or connection to sewers, are made in addition to any local environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need London brick maintenance advice, can a surveyor in Upton Upon Severn help?

Brick-constructed structures in Upton Upon Severn do benefit from many advantages, but they can also show signs of numerous defects, such as crumbling mortar. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously. M & M Bricklayers may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 07776 393067 or 99 Swiftsure Rd, Chafford Hundred, Grays, RM16 6YB.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface).
