Home Buyers Survey in Thornton Cleveleys

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Thornton Cleveleys and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Thornton Cleveleys property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Thornton Cleveleys property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We noticed there are no cracks in the brickwork outside, but living room floor dips noticeably, is this subsidence? What subsidence issues does the Chartered Surveyor report on?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. A builder should return to a new home within a few months in order to repair settlement damage.

Cracks to a plaster are a plain suggestion of subsidence. These could, fortunately, be merely superficial. Inside the property, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Willow trees, for example, are often the culprits of serious subsidence. Buyers are often surprised to learn that a willow tree should be planted no neared than 40m from a home. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the building we expect to move into we think we noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a the surveyor write anything on the electrics?

When performing a Thornton Cleveleys Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor will usually make a note on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a poor condition.

This should include a visual view of exposed parts of the wiring in addition to things, for example reporting on the category of electrical fittings in shower rooms.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician on the property should be part of the survey. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the property should usually form part of the survey.
