HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Standish and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Standish property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations on the Standish property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Standish property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the RICS surveyor inquire into signs of flood damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and owning a home in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. In addition, the property survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. lime-based plaster. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the Standish building we plan to buy. What should we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your home surveyor.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The seller has mentioned subsidence might be a problem. What subsidence-related defects will my Home Buyers Survey look into?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a building which compromises its structural integrity. Most buildings experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. Generally, a builder will return to a new building within a few months in order to repair settlement damage.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that flat ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and begin to slide downward. In severe conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
