Home Buyers Survey in Greenhithe

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Greenhithe and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Greenhithe property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Greenhithe property's condition along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of that windows in the dining room did not line up, is this subsidence? What subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor review?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. Generally, a builder will return to a new house after time has passed in order to make repairs. Subsidence-related cracks are normally thinner towards the bottom of the crack, if it runs up a wall. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, possibly as a result of lower-quality materials.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Oak and elm trees must be located well away from the property, at least 30m. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the unmodernised property I am possibly going to lease I think we saw that there is an unsafe electrical system, does a Homebuyer Report in Greenhithe go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Greenhithe the home surveyor will report on the electrical system if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe state. This should include an overview look-over of the open parts of the wiring and other areas e.g. reporting on the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances e.g. heaters or verifying the condition of a sample of light fittings. Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Greenhithe.

The IEE strongly advise that a Periodic Inspection Report be conducted at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
