HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Worplesdon and which is cheaper?

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

If the Worplesdon property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Worplesdon property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the thirties house we want to buy it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; does the surveyor go into detail on the electrics?

When conducting a Worplesdon Building Survey the surveyor will typically add detail on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsafe state. Your surveyor will also report back on things like whether there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply. Looking at any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey. Inspecting the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE recommend that a Periodic Inspection need be completed every ten years (5 if renting out).

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. What should we expect a Worplesdon Property Survey to include?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Visible results may be anything from separation of the skirting board from the floor to sticking window frames. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like monitoring the moisture content of the soil around the foundations, and taking steps to keep the level reasonably stable. Patches of wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should wet conditions have on a home in Worplesdon? Will the Worplesdon HomeBuyer Report give details on this? Can damaged rainwater goods decrease our property's value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact wet weather can have on homes in Worplesdon is not given the attention it deserves. If you have only visited the home in dry weather, defects may not have been obvious. Whether buying in Worplesdon or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy.
