HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Worcestershire and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Worcestershire property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations on the Worcestershire property, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Worcestershire property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can my Worcestershire House Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

There are numerous issues associated with clay soil. Issues range from moisture changes in the soil to soil movement, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years, such as small cracks in the bedroom wall. A Worcestershire surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. 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.

Building Surveys on houses

When purchasing a doer-upper Victorian mid terrace property, do I need to order a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now named the Building Survey. You should choose the Building Survey for the house you are considering. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a post fifties unmodified Worcestershire house of normal building materials. There are certain survey no go areas exist with any residential survey because a local Worcestershire surveyor is not authorised open up the structure of the house of assess safety of gas sources.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we should verify if purchasing an extended house in Worcestershire inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors need to possess local knowledge of relevant local factors and the bearing may have with the property. Values is usually greater due to them being in good order. However a large number are falling into a state of neglect for example - out of keeping extensions

Surveyors will advise if the home looks to be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are conducted by your solicitor. Out of keeping developments to the property may be commented on but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.
