About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Friday Hill

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Friday Hill and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Friday Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Friday Hill property's condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the home we want to move into we think we noticed that there was some evidence of an overload of the fuses, does a Friday Hill survey advise on the electrical system condition?

When preparing a Friday Hill Home Buyers Survey the home surveyor should comment on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a dangerous state.

This will include a non invasive inspection of the superficial areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to things like reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances such as heaters or whether there are miniature circuit breakers. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an older coast house in Friday Hill. Will the age of the property be a problem?

Many buyers in Friday Hill have looked at purchasing property with real personality. Use of traditional methods, however, can concern buyers. Structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can make the final cost hard to predict.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations cause difficulties for Friday Hill property? What should we expect a Home Survey to include?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a property can be significant. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Signs like sticking doors can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Friday Hill, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In the HomeBuyer Report what can 'E2 - Roof coverings' cover?

Roof coverings, including flat and sloped roofs will be reviewed, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report. Leaks in the roof is one example. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show to what extent each defect requires attention. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.
