About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Southfields

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Southfields and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Southfields property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Southfields property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor inspect the safety of the gas supply?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually check the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the routing of any gas pipes at the home, in addition to gas related appliances like chimney breasts. The gas fittings won't actually be taken off. Gas can be hazardous, should there be any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer immediately.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations cause problems for Southfields home? What should we expect a Home Buyers Survey to include?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Southfields buyers. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Southfields, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
