About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Leconfield

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Leconfield and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Leconfield property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Leconfield property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property cause problems for residents? Are there specific defects to bear in mind? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

From Portland Roach Limestone to Portland Cap Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues including cracks affect many stone-walled property in Leconfield. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property in Leconfield, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decoration. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Can your Building Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

Clay soil can create a range of issues for property owners. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the living room to warped window frames in the living room. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Leconfield, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor look at the safety of the gas supply?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected at the home, in addition to gas related installations e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. However, the Leconfield qualified RICS surveyor will not remove any external fittings and won't do any tests on the serviceability of the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, call an engineer without delay.

Conservatory

On a Leconfield HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects impacting 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will also be mentioned in the report. A sagging conservatory floor surface is an example of this. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents.
