HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Tring and which is cheaper?

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

If the Tring property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Tring property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

On a Tring HomeBuyer Report, what might a an red light rating mean for chimney stacks?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Red, amber and green ratings give house buyers indicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed. These elements are visually inspected, using binoculars. Loose chimney vent connectors, for example, is included in Section E.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I opt for a full structural survey before buying a poor condition forties house in Tring?

Structural surveys are now called Building Surveys. Go for the Building Survey in the case of the house outlined. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a 60 year old or less unmodified Tring property made out of typical construction materials and methods. There are certain limitations exist with the survey because a local surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the Tring house for example, or assess serviceability of a boiler.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted that the garage floor dipped in one corner, is this subsidence? What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement does occur in new homes, 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. Additionally, most homes are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with an above-average concentration of gravel, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. Inside the property, keep an eye out for rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
