HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Mawsley property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension on the Mawsley property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Mawsley property's condition as well as information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Mawsley and are looking for a 30s house with brick. What recommendations will you make? Is age a factor?

Brick-walled properties in Mawsley can be subject to considerable issues. These can include frost damage or cracks. For example, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and may require immediate attention. Contact JH Builders for a repairs estimate at 024 7663 7324 or 41 Alder Rd, Coventry, CV6 7DN.

As an example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the HomeBuyer Report check any flooding?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Met Office), and the value of a residential property in an at-risk area may be impacted. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residential property in question is in danger.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house in Mawsley, such as via badly fitted air bricks.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. lime-based plaster. The property surveyor may ask the occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Property Survey to mention this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Mawsley buyers. Specific problems include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. In Mawsley's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. Signs like sticking doors can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Steps like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
