HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Walton Merseyside and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Walton Merseyside property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Walton Merseyside property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Walton Merseyside, and think we saw signs of pests in the bathroom - Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Walton Merseyside homes are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to a serious infestation can include removal of infected

furniture. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a barn conversion. Will the house's age be an issue?

Older construction methods and materials can be problematic. Homes constructed with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. .

Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings. If you plan to make alterations to a period building, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have learnt that clay soil can cause problems for homes in Walton Merseyside. Can we expect the Walton Merseyside Property Survey to mention this?

Factors from wet rot to heavy rainfall can cause costs and inconvenience for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of numerous issues. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Signs like sticking doors can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. A Walton Merseyside surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Small areas of wet and 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.
