Home Buyers Survey in Frizington

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Frizington and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Frizington property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Frizington property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Does a House Survey discuss soil composition the report, and what defects will be reported on?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Specific problems include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. In Frizington's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Frizington house's foundations, forcing them inward.

Taking precautions, such as monitoring the moisture content of the soil around the foundations, and taking steps to keep the level reasonably stable, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Isolated patches of dry 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.

Building Surveys on houses

When investing in a substantially modified period end of terrace home - do I need to get a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys are now dubbed Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if buying a 60 year old or less unmodified Frizington house of normal construction materials. The Building Survey is definitely the most advisable choice for the house mentioned. Two to three days after an exhaustive survey of the accessible areas of the house, a formal written report will be sent to the buyer providing any significant insight on the standard of construction and repair of the house.

You should be aware of several restrictions are integral with any residential survey because a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the house nor can he/she advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations. Certain external buildings will also be looked at.
