HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Swavesey and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Swavesey property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Swavesey property's condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages to opt for the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when considering a substantially modified bungalow?

Structural Surveys are no longer available as a newer technical survey which has been classified as the Building Survey is now available. We recommend that you select a Building Survey for the house outlined. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a non period Swavesey home of standard building materials i.e. brick/tile. Bear

in mind that certain limitations exist with a Building Survey as a qualified RICS surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the building nor can they comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects. Will a surveyor look into this?

Swavesey purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. Signs may not be obvious, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of poison.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Swavesey house and am a little concerned that the foundations are at risk. Will the Swavesey Home Buyers Survey consider this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property in Swavesey can have unwanted consequences. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the bathroom wall to a sticking door in the bathroom. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.
