About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Clayhall

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Clayhall and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Clayhall property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Clayhall property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

For the Clayhall HomeBuyer Report, what effect can a Condition Rating 1 have on roof coverings?

Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific residence being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed. One example would be discolouration of an EPDM roof. As part of Section E2, these elements are inspected by the surveyor, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Clayhall property built in the late 60s, but it has clay foundations. Can your Clayhall Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant, with subsidence being a common example. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change, such as cracked plaster. There is a real benefit in booking a Clayhall surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. 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.
