HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in St Pancras and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the St Pancras property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the St Pancras property's condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to upgrade to the full structural survey when acquiring a shabby Victorian bungalow near St Pancras as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes still referred to as a Full Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, it is no longer available and this most technical survey has been re-titled by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. The Building Survey is now the correct choice of home survey when purchasing an altered property e.g. a property in poor condition St Pancras house. This survey summarises comprehensive and often crucial professional advice about the homes construction and uses on top of any maintenance needs after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the house.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in St Pancras may be worth checking. What subsidence information does the St Pancras Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a building and its foundations. Home buyers can confuse subsidence with settlement. Settlement will occur in recently built buildings, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months. Most homes in St Pancras are constructed from a range of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground and could then become unsteady and slip down the incline. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the House Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil can create a range of issues for property owners. Issues range from compression of layers of the sub-soil to considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. 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. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a St Pancras property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. 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.
