HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Chipping Campden and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Chipping Campden property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Chipping Campden property's condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Does a Chipping Campden HomeBuyer Report discuss soil composition the report?

Clay soil can create a number of issues for property owners. Specific problems include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Chipping Campden

property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. 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.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. What can we do?

Any questions about pests affecting a Chipping Campden building may not be asked by the lawyer. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to vermin can include destruction of tainted materials.
