Home Buyers Survey in Sneyd Green

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Sneyd Green and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Sneyd Green property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Sneyd Green property's condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the period property we are meaning to move into it appeared that there is an old fuse board ; does Sneyd Green survey go into detail on electrical system condition?

When performing a Sneyd Green Homebuyer Report the RICS surveyor will comment on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in an unsafe state. A Chartered surveyor is required to report on issues like confirming that the supplementary bonding is in the correct place. Looking at any documentation from the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Sneyd Green. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the survey in Sneyd Green .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) recommend that a periodic test need be completed at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found that the living room floor dipped in one corner, is this subsidence? What subsidence issues does the Sneyd Green Surveyor report on?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new house after time has passed in order to repair settlement damage.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. For example, water leaking from a broken pipes will clear away soil supporting the building structure. This can effectively reduce the volume of the soil surrounding the structure, meaning it can no longer support the weight of the building. On the inside, keep an eye out for doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
