HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Winton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Winton property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give comprehensive details of the Winton property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons of carrying out a full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when considering a shabby end of terrace house?

Although commonly and incorrectly called Full Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike they have been replaced by Building Surveys You would be best advised to select the Building Survey for the house mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a non period unmodified Winton property built out of conventional construction materials. Be aware that some limitations exist with any survey insofar as your local Winton surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the Winton house or advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Home Buyers Survey to mention this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a home. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. Signs like a hard-to-open living room door or warping of floorboards can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Steps like ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Winton building will include a property valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as a standard part of the survey. To fully consider the market value the surveyor will combine in depth understanding of the Winton market as well as other factors about the property for instance: size Surveyors also examine materials used and make certain other assumptions, for example there being no significant defects. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further Winton assumptions, for example the property being insurable, are made in addition to Winton environmental problems like nearby railway tracks, which are also considered as part of the valuation. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
