Which Survey is the correct choice for my planned house purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Belgravia property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Belgravia property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to order a full structural survey when looking into a dilapidated period property near Belgravia rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Often described as a Structural Survey by house buyers, this survey is now defunct and has actually been reclassified by RICS and the right term is actually now the Building Survey. This is the most appropriate survey to choose if buying an unconventional house e.g. a property in poor condition house. The survey provides relevant insight concerning the property's construction materials and any defects after a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas of the house. You can compare what is and isn't included here.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Belgravia HomeBuyer Report to mention this?

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. 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. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Steps like checking that the downpipe drains correctly can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Belgravia? We're concerned about replacement costs.

I find it odd that high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on properties are not given enough thought by buyers.

Signs that drainage are at risk include a waterlogged garden. Blocked rainwater goods can result in rotten roof timbers.

In most cases, this is quite easy to remedy. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
