Home Buyers Survey in Charing Cross

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Charing Cross and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Charing Cross property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a thorough analysis of the Charing Cross property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can be an issue for homes in Charing Cross. Can we expect the Charing Cross Building Survey to mention this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a home. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as minor wall cracks in the garage. There is a real benefit in booking a Charing Cross surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand.

Building Surveys on houses

Can you please explain the reason in spending a bit more on the full structural survey when looking into a converted semi detached home in Charing Cross rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly still called the Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, it is now defunct and and has been re-titled by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is actually now the RICS Building Survey. This is now the correct choice of home survey if buying an unusual home such as an older house. It summarises comprehensive and far-reaching advice on the homes standard of construction and repair as well as any maintenance needs a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts.
