Home Buyers Survey in Burghfield Common

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Burghfield Common and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Burghfield Common property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations on the property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Burghfield Common property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the home we are interested to lease, it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will the Burghfield Common surveyor go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Burghfield Common Homebuyer Report your surveyor will make a note on the overall electrical system if it looks like they are in an unsatisfactory state. The RICS surveyor is trained to report on potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of fixed electrical appliances, for example heaters or if there is an off-peak /on-peak supply. Inspecting any documents from the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician should usually be part of the survey.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a apartment in Burghfield Common and spotted there are no cracks in the brickwork outside, but living room floor dips noticeably. What subsidence issues will the property survey consider?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a building and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement will often occur in newly constructed buildings, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. In addition, some homes in Burghfield Common are erected with a variety of materials. These will contract at different rates.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high sand, gravel or chalk content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks or flooding. Inside the house, keep an eye out for sticking doors or windows.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
