HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Aston and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Aston property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Aston property's condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 19th Century coast house in Aston. What impact will the cladding have on regular maintenance?

A building's age can sometimes be an issue. Aston property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a flat in Aston and found a gap below the skirting board in the basement. What are the risks, and what can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be remedied more easily than you might expect. The builder will likely return to a new home after time has passed so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Aston. For example, water leaking from a broken drainpipe or mains pipe will clear away soil supporting the building structure. By reducing the volume of the subsoil, the earth is more readily displaced by the weight of the property. In serious weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.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. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. 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.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a building near to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including commercial waste material. No one wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include complex organic chemicals. Health issues like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Aston RICS surveyors will notice any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological data sets as well as West Oxfordshire Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
