HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Belbroughton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Belbroughton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Belbroughton property's condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property and the seller has stated that it has been partially constructed with York stone. Are there specific matters to consider?

There are many of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Defects such as delaminated render affect many stone-walled properties in Belbroughton. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. Maintenance tips include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Belbroughton should be able to supply local stone.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any benefits to upgrade to a full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report when considering a un-loved townhouse?

Albeit sometimes still described as Full Structural Surveys by many agents and buyers they are now correctly called Building Surveys If you are buying an unusual home such as a period house - this is now the correct choice of home survey to get a surveyor to do. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a mid 20th century of later unmodified Belbroughton house built out of typical construction materials and methods. After a thorough inspection of the accessible parts of the house, the surveyor's formal report is posted to the prospective buyer specifying thorough and important insight on the materials used for the construction of the house. There are certain limitations with any survey insofar as a qualified surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Belbroughton property e.g. removing the contents of cupboards. The following article for further information on survey specifics.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Belbroughton home and am quite worried that there is a danger of subsidence. Can we expect the Belbroughton Home Buyers Survey to mention this, and what defects will be reported on?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant, with sub-soil shrinkage and consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss being relatively common. There may be little evidence of underlying defects, such as widening cracks. A Belbroughton surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
