HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Barton Upon Humber and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Barton Upon Humber property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Barton Upon Humber property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will the Barton Upon Humber Home Buyers Survey consider this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a property can be significant. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Barton Upon Humber property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and

severe structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it worth paying a bit more for a full structural survey when considering a maisonette ?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its reclassification in 2010 by RICS. We would suggest that you opt for a RICS Building Survey for the maisonette mentioned. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a mid century or later Barton Upon Humber property built out of conventional building materials i.e. brick and tile. There are certain caveats exist with any residential survey as a chartered surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the building or investigate the internal state of any flues.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the surveyor search for possible flooding damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and the value of a house in an at-risk area may be impacted. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger.

Flood water can enter a home in Barton Upon Humber through several routes, including window frames. An awareness of characteristics of the Barton Upon Humber area likely to affect the home in Barton Upon Humber also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the home in Barton Upon Humber has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
