Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    The Homebuyer Report should be chosen when purchasing a home made of conventional building materials such as brick and tile, not dilapidated and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Warwick and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Warwick property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Warwick property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice get a Warwick House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the building I want to acquire, the agent said that there is an unsafe electrical system, will a surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Warwick Building Survey the home surveyor will typically mention the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. This should include a general look-over of any uncovered areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as concerns such as ascertaining the category of electrical fittings in bathrooms.

Confirming the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician on the building will be part of the survey in Warwick. Inspecting the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Warwick might be a problem. What subsidence information does the Warwick house survey include?

Movement of a structure on a structural level is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. Many homes are constructed from a range of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Cracks that appear suddenly may suggest movement and subsidence. Inside, keep an eye out for doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a house and the agent has stated that it has been built with York stone. Which related issues should we consider?

Incorrect use of Cement based mortar on a structure build with Hydraulic Lime can often cause problems for Warwick houses with stone walls. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than walls of irregular construction. This is a generalisation however, as limestone or sandstone-built and regularly-coursed walls can decay rapidly when exposed to more extreme environmental conditions or pollution. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, and may need repointing. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.
