HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Newton Ferrers and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Newton Ferrers property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Newton Ferrers property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice get a Newton Ferrers Homebuyers Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I order a full structural survey prior to acquiring a shabby, seventies first floor apartment in Newton Ferrers?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification in 2010 by RICS. If buying an unusual Newton Ferrers property e.g. an unloved house, this is the most suitable choice of home survey. The report will give in depth and salient professional advice concerning the property's construction as well as any maintenance needs, shortly after a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a farmstead. What consequences will the property's wooden structure have on repairs?

For traditionally-built Newton Ferrers property, age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Properties built using traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your surveyor for more information.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What negative impact does clay soil have on a property's foundations? Will a Home Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Newton Ferrers can have unwanted consequences. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! A Newton Ferrers surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
