HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Arley property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Arley property's general condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Is there a flood risk in Arley, and will the chartered surveyor search for any water damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of residents in Arley and across the country; sensible owners and house purchasers in Arley are right to consider precautions. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the house survey may advise on needed maintenance.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the RICS surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Arley home and am concerned that the clay soil foundations have suffered some subsidence. What should we expect a Arley House Survey to include?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. For example, warping of floorboards may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation.

Taking precautions, such as swift repair of any collapsed drains, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
