HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Chipping Sodbury and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chipping Sodbury property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Chipping Sodbury property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors need to have local knowledge of local area factors and any bearing they have with the building and its value.

However many are falling into poor condition for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a house close to a landfill site

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Chipping Sodbury, and the home's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will a Chipping Sodbury Home Survey look into this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Chipping Sodbury buyers. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Chipping Sodbury home's foundations, forcing them inward. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
