About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Highbridge

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Highbridge and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Highbridge property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Highbridge property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent mentioned subsidence is a concern. What are the risks, and what subsidence issues will the HomeBuyer Report examine?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. In some older buildings cracks may be visible in the Summer months[ that close up in the winter] when the materials absorb moisture. These cracks are usually completely harmless.

Subsidence can be caused by a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that flat ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer can sometimes become unstable and begin to slide downward. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. 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.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the period property we are interested to buy it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - does a surveyor write anything on electrical system condition?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Highbridge a RICS surveyor will typically report on the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe state. A Home surveyor should also potential areas for concern such as reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Verifying the location of the documents from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if letting out).
