HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Grove Park and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Grove Park property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Grove Park property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to have the full structural survey if purchasing a derelict thirties cottage near Grove Park as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Frequently referred to as a Full Structural Survey by some, it is no longer available and this most technical survey has been given a new title by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. Choose the Building Survey for the house you describe. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a 60 year old or less Grove Park house of typical building materials. You should be aware of several caveats exist with a Building Survey as a local surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the structure of the building for example, or inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create problems? I am buying a home in Grove Park. Will my Grove Park HomeBuyer Report look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Specific problems include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Grove Park home's foundations, forcing them inward. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil. 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.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a converted stable in Grove Park. What consequences will the building's thatched roof have on regular maintenance?

Older construction methods and materials can worry purchasers, and Grove Park property built using traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area.
