HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Poringland and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Poringland property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Poringland property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay a bit more for a full structural survey on a flat ?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed as a Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a mid century or later unmodified Poringland flat of normal construction materials and methods i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. The Building Survey is the most advisable selection in relation to the flat described. Two to three days after a thorough survey of the accessible areas of the flat, a formal report is posted to the buyer providing thorough and relevant information on the condition of the building.

There are certain limitations with a property survey because your surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the of the Poringland flat, an example being the removing roof space contents. Also flat conversions involve shared parts of the building which cannot always be accessed. - so the surveyor will only advise on the actual flat, though he may exist other tenant shared areas such as commonly accessible roof spaces. For a table containing a breakdown of what each survey type includes visit Survey comparison table.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Poringland house and am a little concerned that the foundations are at risk. Will the Poringland Property Survey look into this, and what defects will be reported on?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Poringland home, with groundwater level variations and soil movement being relatively common. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious contracting effect on clay soil, compromising the property's structural integrity and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property, such as cracks along the garage wall. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
