Home Buyers Survey in Onslow Village

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Onslow Village and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Onslow Village property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Onslow Village property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Onslow Village? Will my HomeBuyer Report look into this, and what defects will be reported on?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Issues range from sub-soil shrinkage to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Signs like warped window frames in the drawing room can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to order a full structural survey prior to purchasing a dilapidated Edwardian house close to Onslow Village?

Full Structural Surveys are now dubbed Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient for a mid century or later unmodified home assembled from conventional building materials. A Building Survey would be the proper survey to choose in relation to the house described. Around 3 days following an exhaustive survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the chartered surveyors report will be sent to the prospective purchaser detailing in depth and frequently critical insight about the standard of construction and repair of the house. There will be certain limitations with a Building Survey to consider insofar as a surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Onslow Village house for example removing roof space contents.
