HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Deanshanger and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Deanshanger property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Deanshanger property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a property I want to move into I think we saw that there is an old fuse board ; does a surveyor go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Deanshanger Home Survey your RICS surveyor will make a note on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. The RICS surveyor is required to possible problems relating to things like checking any external or remote installations such as water features. Reporting on any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician on the building will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Deanshanger.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the building will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE recommend that a Periodic Inspection be conducted every ten years (5 if letting).

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would be advised to be wary of if purchasing a period property in Deanshanger near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local considerations and any connection they have with the home and its value. House prices are generally more than prices outside the area which is down to conservation areas being in good order. However many areas are falling into poor condition for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors are trained to advise you if the property might be so designated and Section I of the Deanshanger Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are conducted during the legal process. Out of keeping modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Will the Deanshanger HomeBuyer Report consider this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. In Deanshanger's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable minor wall cracks in the kitchen, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
