HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Beverley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Beverley property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Beverley property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we investigate when purchasing an old building in Beverley? Will the house's age be a problem?

Some buyers would be interested in owning property with real personality. The age of a structure, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and Buildings featuring traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. Contact your building surveyor for further advice.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will a Beverley Building Survey look into this?

Whether a house was built in 1702 or 2002, factors as varied as acid rain or rising damp can create issues for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a range of issues. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the living room to warped window frames in the living room. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Beverley, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My friend spotted signs of an infestation in the lounge. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
