Home Buyers Survey in Laindon

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Laindon and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Laindon property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Laindon property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a coast house. Will repairs costs be higher?

The age of a structure can worry purchasers. Laindon homes constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Does a HomeBuyer Report discuss soil composition the report?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a property can be significant. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a property. For example, widening cracks may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like keeping standing water on the property in check. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.
