HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Euxton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Euxton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Euxton property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create issues? I am buying a house in Euxton. Will your House Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Whether a house was built in 1705 or 2005, factors as varied as termites or fungal decay can create inconvenience for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a number of issues. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Euxton house's foundations, forcing them inward. There is a real benefit in booking a Euxton surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. 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.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I want to move into, it looked like there is an old fuse board - does a the Euxton surveyor go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

During a Euxton Home Buyers Survey your surveyor will typically add detail on the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in an unsafe condition. He or she will also potential areas for concern such as verifying the state of repair of any fitted appliances such as storage radiators. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually form part of the survey.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a property and the owner has stated that it has been built with Forest of Dean stone. Which major factors should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
