Which Survey should I select for my prospective house purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected when buying a home constructed from standard building materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable order and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Goodwick

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Goodwick) will also be conducted by a MRICS or FRICS accredited surveyor and is more detailed. Opt for this when buying a non standard e.g. timber frame homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Goodwick

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. This is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Goodwick property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Goodwick property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. What should we expect a Goodwick Property Survey to include, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. 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. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered.

The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I would need to consider when intending to buy a home in Goodwick in a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities. Goodwick surveyors must have relevant knowledge of local area issues and any effect may have with the property. Property values will probably be more than prices outside the area as a result of conservation areas being in good order. However a growing number have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors can be expected to report whether the location is/might be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Goodwick Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted by your legal representation. Out of keeping changes to the building may be noted, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.
