Home Buyers Survey in Bedmond

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Bedmond and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Bedmond property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the Bedmond property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, but it does give you comprehensive details of the Bedmond property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Bedmond home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a garage) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report includes a professional valuation and will also include a rebuilding cost. To estimate the property's value the valuer will take into account local Bedmond market factors and other considerations relating to the property for instance: square metres. Surveyors also evaluate construction type and will make certain other assumptions, for example there being no serious defects.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there aren't any impossible to rectify legal issues e.g. building regulations having been complied. These will be investigated by your conveyancer.

Further area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like brine mining activity, which will also be factored in.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create problems? I am buying a house in Bedmond. Can the Bedmond HomeBuyer Report investigate this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property in Bedmond can have unwanted consequences. Issues range from compression of layers of the sub-soil to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
