HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in East Croydon and which is cheaper?

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

If the East Croydon property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the East Croydon property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in East Croydon, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will the Home Buyers Survey consider this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a home. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. For example, widening cracks may be benign, or a clue prompting a more

thorough investigation. A East Croydon surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.

East Croydon property are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Regrettably, pests can impact a home's worth and put your health in danger.

Stone block wall damage

Can Kentish Rag stone-built houses be hard to upkeep. What potential issues should we be aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include displacement. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.
