HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Inkberrow and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Inkberrow property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Inkberrow property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Inkberrow Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we need to be conscious of if purchasing a converted flat in Inkberrow near a conservation area?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and the connection may have with the building and its value. The value of homes is, more often than not, more than prices outside the area due to them being unspoilt. However a large number have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors will advise you whether the location looks to be is designated and Section I of the Inkberrow Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out during the conveyancing process. Unapproved adjustments to the

building will also be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does wet weather have on our new Inkberrow house? And could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Inkberrow and across the country, but rainfall and the effect it can have on your property are ignored. If you have only been to the property you intend to purchase in on a clear day, obvious defects may be harder to find. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to repair, if identified early. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will a Building Survey look into this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay 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. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Inkberrow property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Steps like swift repair of any collapsed drains can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. 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.
