HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Wootton Bassett and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Wootton Bassett property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Wootton Bassett property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 16th Century converted barn in Wootton Bassett. What consequences will the unusual construction have on repairs?

Some purchasers have considered buying a home with character, such as a Victorian home. For traditionally-built Wootton Bassett property, age, however, can worry purchasers, and Wootton Bassett homes built using traditional methods can be costly to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. If the home you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your property surveyor for more information.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations create problems for Wootton Bassett house? Does the HomeBuyer Report cover this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects, with subsidence being a common example. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly, such as small cracks in the kitchen floor. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Wootton Bassett, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Defective door frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Wootton Bassett what might a green light rating mean for 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

An example of this is double or triple glazed doors where the glazing seal has been lost or broken. The surveyor will confirm that all external doors work if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. Generally, the security offer by these doors will be reported on. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, with a minimum of technical jargon. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. 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.
