Home Buyers Survey in Gamlingay

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Gamlingay and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Gamlingay property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Gamlingay property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Gamlingay may be a concern. What subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor inspect?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be remedied without a great deal of stress. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new building within a few months to make good any settlement cracks.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the brickwork or walls on the outside may indicate subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include fresh cracks in brick or plaster.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons to go for the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report if buying a derelict detached townhouse?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer available as a new technical survey called a Building Survey, is now offered by surveyors. If buying an unconventional Gamlingay house, for example a neglected house, this is the right choice. It will give comprehensive and relevant advice about the homes state of repair as well as any defects a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house. Permanent outside buildings should be assessed as part of the survey.
