Do you need a Home Buyers Survey? Which of the 3 should you select?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Blythe Bridge and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Blythe Bridge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Blythe Bridge property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and will also include a cost of reinstatement as part of the survey. To estimate the market value your chartered surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Blythe Bridge market and other things about the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate construction type and draw upon other assumptions, for example there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there are no major legal problems like the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local Blythe Bridge area assumptions like services, are made in addition to environmental issues like the property being underneath a flight path, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Blythe Bridge, and the property's foundations have been built on clay soil. What should we expect a Property Survey to include, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a home's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. Steps like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The stretcher bond walls on this Blythe Bridge property is badly worn - what should we do? Is age a factor?

Blythe Bridge brick-walled houses can suffer from numerous defects. For instance, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including London Elite Brickwork Contractors of 82 Gloucester Rd, Hampton, TW12 2UJ on 07530 225257.

Buyers in Blythe Bridge should consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours have been used across the country for centuries. As an example, Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond.
