Which Survey is the right choice for my intended house purchase ?

    The Homebuyer Report is the right choice if purchasing a home constructed from conventional building materials such as brick and tile, not dilapidated and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Chaddesden

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Chaddesden and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Chaddesden property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Chaddesden property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Chaddesden Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Chaddesden. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What aspects of the roofing will be considered?

Chaddesden residences that are otherwise ideal can still be subject to difficulties with the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to sheeting. The surveyors in Chaddesden could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Chaddesden contractor

can provide one. Contact S P H Roofing of 131 Monk St, Derby, DE22 3QE on 01332 200588 for details.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when purchasing a property next to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including inert waste disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include tars and other hazardous materials .

Surveys in Chaddesden will find structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database and Derby Local Authority and advise you .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Chaddesden property built in the early 40s, but it has clay foundations. Will a Chaddesden Home Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Chaddesden can have unwanted consequences. Specific problems include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave, such as sticking doors. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
