HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Kenton and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Kenton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations on the Kenton property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kenton property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I would need to check out when intending to buy a converted house in Kenton near a conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors need to possess local knowledge of local issues and any bearing they have with the property and its value. Values is usually greater owing to them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to advise you if the house looks to be is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are carried out by your legal adviser. Out of keeping modifications to the property will also be reported in the Kenton survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us - What aspects of the roofing will be reported on?

Properties in Kenton with no other major issues could feature difficulties with the roof, for example, damp. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from tie beams to gables. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Kenton, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Can your Kenton Home Survey investigate this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Specific problems include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Signs like a sticking door in the bedroom or minor wall cracks in the bedroom can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Kenton, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. 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.
