Home Buyers Survey in Uxbridge

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Uxbridge and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Uxbridge property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Uxbridge property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Uxbridge property and am a little concerned that the foundations are at risk. Will the HomeBuyer Report look into this?

Factors from fungal decay to low-grade construction materials can cause problems for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of numerous issues. Issues range from shrinking of clay soil to considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a home. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a home's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Small areas of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
