HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Crick property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Crick property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have heard that Crick property built on clay soil can experience problems. Does a Crick Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Specific issues include swelling of the soil. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or

may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years, such as sticking window frames. 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.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a building close to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. inert refuse disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include chemicals like dioxins .

Homebuyer reports in Crick will flag up structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as Daventry Local Authority and advise you .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we investigate guttering?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which wet weather has on property is not given the attention it deserves by buyers. If you have only seen the residence on a clear day, issues may have been hidden. Signs that gutters are damaged include damp stains around drainage. This can lead to lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

Fortunately, guttering issues are generally easy to remedy. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
