HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Willesden Green and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Willesden Green property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Willesden Green property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the House Survey consider this?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including sub-soil shrinkage. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable minor wall cracks in the drawing room, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Parcels of wet and dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
