HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Broadway and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Broadway property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Broadway property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Broadway Home Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof caused problems in the past, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we do about roof repairs?

Broadway residences that are otherwise ideal can still be subject to roofing woes. From clay tiles to collar ties, the whole roof should be reported on. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as re-covering asphalt) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a local roofing specialist can provide one.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Broadway home buyers survey investigate any flood damage, or if nearby homes have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in Broadway in question is in danger. Flood water can enter a house through several routes, including seepage through walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The surveyor may ask the vendor or agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have been informed that Broadway houses built on clay soil can experience problems. Does a Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Broadway house. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including compression of layers of the sub-soil. Drought, for instance, can have a measurable contracting effect on clay soil, squeezing the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Signs like warped window frames in the garage or warping of floorboards can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Broadway, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
