Home Buyers Survey in Gloucestershire

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Gloucestershire and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Gloucestershire property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the Gloucestershire property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Gloucestershire property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1990-built home in Gloucestershire and spotted that the kitchen floor was uneven. What are the risks, and what subsidence issues will the Home Buyers Survey reveal?

Movement of the foundations of a structure is called subsidence. Buyers in Gloucestershire should be aware, however, that there is a difference between subsidence and benign settlement.

It is not always obvious that subsidence is at work, as most of the tell-tale signs could comfortably be as the result of several factors. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Maple, lime and horse chestnut trees should planted no closer than 20m to the property itself. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.
