About Us

Home Buyers Survey in March

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in March and which is cheaper?

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

If the March property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the March property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

In a March HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual an red light rating defects affecting rainwater pipes and gutters?

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report.

The drainage system is inspected visually, where access is possible. This section does not include blocked drains below ground. Leaking downspouts is an example.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a home in March. What does a surveyor in March check when the home is surveyed?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors in March by home buyers who are aware that property will suffer roofing woes. From tie beams to rafters, the whole roof will be taken into account. Your surveyors in March may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like wholesale replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A local contractor can provide an estimate. Call Turner Contracting Ltd of Lavender Cottage/Seadyke Rd, Wisbech St. Mary, Wisbech, PE13 4SB on 01945 410263 for details.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What effect does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Will a Building Survey look into this?

Factors from wet rot to snow can cause high maintenance costs for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a range of issues. Issues range from sub-soil shrinkage to considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. Patches of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
