HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Bredon property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Bredon property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations cause problems for Bredon property? Can we expect the Home Survey to mention this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Issues range from shrinking of clay soil to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. 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. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable small cracks in the living room wall, to complete structural failure. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Bredon, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Parcels of dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Bredon, what input does a surveyor in Bredon give for a 80s property with Diagonal bond walls? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-constructed houses demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also be affected by a number of issues, including frost damaged pointing and badly applied render. One frequently reported defect is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Contact Lowe A J for a repairs estimate at 07885 729456 or 2 Monarch Close, Locks Heath, Southampton, SO31 6UG.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I would need to check on when buying a flat in Bredon in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Bredon surveyors must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the connection they have with the building. Property Prices will likely be higher because of the areas retaining their original character. However many areas have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors can be expected to advise if the planned purchase is possibly classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Bredon Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by your conveyancer. Unauthorised adjustments to the building will also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.
