HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Bedworth property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Bedworth property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a flat in the region a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including industrial rubbish disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Risks might include structurally instability. Health concerns such as downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Bedworth will examine structural problems connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Nuneaton and Bedworth Local Authority and advise you .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is damp weather an issue in Bedworth? If there are problems, will they be disruptive to fix?

Regular rainfall is common in Bedworth and across the country, but the impact rainfall can have on your property is rarely considered properly by home buyers. Signs that drainage are blocked include spalling on walls around drainage, and may lead to damp and mould. Luckily, guttering issues are usually easy to repair. If not cared for, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Bedworth subsidence may be a concern. What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the Building Survey?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In the majority of cases, subsidence can be fixed. In some older homes cracks appear in Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials soak up water, but these are in most cases of no concern.

In areas where clay soil is common, a long period of dry weather will cause the moisture level of the soil to fall. This dries out and shrinks the clay, pulling on the homes foundations and causing movement. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which then decomposes, can also destabilise all or part of a foundation. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
