HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Burnham On Sea and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Burnham On Sea property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Burnham On Sea property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we should consider when planning to buy a period property in Burnham On Sea in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Burnham On Sea must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and any relation they have with the property and its value. Property Prices tends to be higher as a result of them being in their original state. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in disrepair for example - the removal front garden walls

Surveyors will note if the home is possibly in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Burnham On Sea Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unsympathetic modifications to the property may also be advised, however these should be concern for your conveyancer. John Shirley & Co are a local firm situated at 24 College Street, Sedgemoor, Somerset, TA8 1AT might be prepared to advise further. Tel: 01278 780202

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a building proximate to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including commercial waste disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include structurally instability. Health issues for example cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Burnham On Sea will find any structural issues connected with the site. Your legal representative will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological database as well as Sedgemoor Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the House Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact, with shrinking of clay soil and soil swelling being relatively common. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Steps like keeping standing water on the property in check can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
