HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Goole and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Goole property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Goole property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour mentioned that the had been issues with damp from the leaking roof. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is a common concern for property purchasers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many homes may be exposed to roof maintenance problems. From dormer windows to tie beams, the roof structure as a whole will be taken into account, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The expense of laying tar paper or felt, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing specialist can provide one.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Goole? Will a House Survey look into this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a property can be significant. Specific issues include swelling of the soil. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. For example, warping of floorboards may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages for choosing a full structural survey in Goole instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys don't actually exist anymore and the Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. If you are looking into purchasing an altered Goole property such as an extended house, it is now the most appropriate selection of survey. The written report provides frequently critical professional advice about the buildings construction materials along with any defects after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. Certain external buildings should be surveyed by the surveyor.
