Looking for a Building Survey? Which one should you opt for?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice when purchasing a property made of standard materials i.e. brick and tile, in reasonable repair and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Sudbury

    The Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Sudbury) is also carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor and is more exhaustive. Opt for this for unconventional such as box frame construction properties.

    This is a professional valuation of the property. This is typically chosen by cash purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Sudbury and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Sudbury property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Sudbury property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an old property. Will the age of the residence be a problem?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing a home with character, such as a Victorian home. A building's age, however, can create difficulties for an owner, and Sudbury property featuring traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. If you are uncertain, speak to your property surveyor for more information.

Gas flame

Does the surveyor inspect the state of repair of the gas mains supply?

Your local surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected for instance, as well as gas affiliated fittings like chimney breasts or flues. Any external fittings or housings won't actually be removed. Most people are aware that gas can be fatal, if you have any concerns about gas at all, , call a gas safe engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. What should we expect a Sudbury HomeBuyer Report to include, and what defects will be reported on?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Sudbury buyers. Specific problems include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious contracting effect on clay soil, squeezing the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property, such as sticking doors. There is a real benefit in booking a Sudbury surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
