HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Wombwell and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Wombwell property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Wombwell property's state of repair as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

In a Wombwell HomeBuyer Report what can 'E3' include?

The drainage system is inspected visually. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report any defects in a combined system. Low-sloping downspouts is one defect applicable to this section. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Wombwell home built in the early 70s, but it has clay foundations. Can your Home Buyers Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

Clay soil can create a range of issues for home owners. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Drought, for instance, can have a contracting effect on clay soil, compromising the property's structural integrity and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable minor wall cracks in the living room, to complete structural failure. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Wombwell, and think we saw signs of insects in the lounge - Will a chartered surveyor look into this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. An affected property may not always be easy to identify. As an example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal or excision of affected timber.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Wombwell surveyor.
