HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Aintree property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Aintree property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get an instant Aintree Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Gas flame

Does the Aintree surveyor check the condition or the safety of the gas flues?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the gas pipe route for example, in addition to gas connected appliances, for instance chimney linings. Fittings will not however be detached. The system won't be tested in any way. Gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can a Aintree Property Survey consider this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding, with shrinking of clay soil and soil swelling being relatively common. In Aintree's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable warping of floorboards, to complete structural failure. A Aintree surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Patches of very dry 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.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would be advised to check on when planning to buy a period property in Aintree in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Surveyors in Aintree must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the bearing may have on the property. Property Prices tends to be more than prices outside the area because of the areas retaining their original character. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors will note whether the location might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out during the legal process. Unauthorised developments to the property should be noted but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.
