Do you need a Property Survey ? Which one is the right choice?

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice if planning to purchase a home constructed from standard materials such as brick and tile, not dilapidated and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bampton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Bampton property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation. How do we investigate further?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Regrettably, vermin can seriously reduce the value of a property and carry serious health risks. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to pest problems can include traps. The property surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a house in Bampton and saw evidence of that there is a 12mm gap between the lounge wall and the door frame. What options are to available to fix this?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water builds up in the soil, which may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that sitting flat and can sometimes become unstable and begin to slide downward. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also undermine the foundations. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Bampton surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would be advised to look out for when buying a house in Bampton in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by local councils.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and any connection they have with the home and its value. House prices will probably be greater which is down to conservation areas being in good order. However many areas are falling into shoddy condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Property surveyors are expected advise whether the location might be within a conservation area and Section I of the Bampton Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unconsented developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.
