Home Buyers Survey in Biddenham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Biddenham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Biddenham property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Biddenham property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor inspect the serviceability of the gas appliances?

A qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at any easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the routing of any gas pipes as part of the Biddenham survey, as well as gas affiliated fittings for example - ventilation of flue (if blocked). Your Biddenham qualified surveyor will not remove external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests whatsoever on the serviceability of the system. Gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Biddenham home and am quite worried that the building might be in danger of movement. Can your Home Buyers Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Biddenham home will have an impact, with compression of layers of the sub-soil and considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content being relatively common. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Signs like a sticking door in the lounge or cracked plaster can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Biddenham, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Biddenham. What suggestions can a surveyor in Biddenham make?

Brick converted property experience diverse problems, ranging from horizontal cracking to lack of a damp proof course. For instance, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and should be taken very seriously. L C P may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01443 842864 or Business Development Centre/Main Av, Treforest Industrial Estate, Pontypridd, CF37 5UR.

Brick-build property have been used across the country for centuries, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
