Home Buyers Survey in North Sheen

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in North Sheen and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the North Sheen property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the North Sheen property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What impact does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Will the North Sheen Home Survey consider this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. In North Sheen's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself., such as a hard-to-open drawing room door.

Taking precautions, such as keeping standing water on the property in check, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. 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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in North Sheen? Also, if there is damage, will they be a hassle to fix?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet wet weather and the effect it can have on North Sheen houses are usually overlooked by home buyers. For example, streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering will likely suggest that the downspouts are worth a closer look. This could then result in a damp or flooded cellar.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
