HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Wadhurst and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Wadhurst property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Wadhurst property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations cause difficulties for Wadhurst house? Does a Wadhurst HomeBuyer Report discuss soil composition the report?

Whether a home was built in 1708 or 2008, factors as varied as insect infestation or mould can create problems for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in several issues. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a home's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural

damage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Substandard guttering

On the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' include?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Wadhurst are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Wadhurst property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a Wadhurst property does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted. In Wadhurst, an example may be leaking or clogged gutters. The drainage system is inspected visually, where access is possible. This section does not include blocked drains below ground.
