HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Frampton Cotterell and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Frampton Cotterell property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works on the Frampton Cotterell property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the Frampton Cotterell property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of if buying a maisonette in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. hazardous rubbish disposal. No one would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include methane gas generation. Potential health problems like congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in Frampton Cotterell will examine any structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as South Gloucestershire Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a house built in the mid 90s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to cause difficulties? Will your Frampton Cotterell HomeBuyer Report look into this?

Whether a house was built in 1703 or 2003, factors as varied as insect infestation or rising damp can create high maintenance costs for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a number of issues. Specific problems include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Signs like sticking doors can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies.

Taking precautions, such as keeping standing water on the property in check, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying slightly more for a full structural survey when considering period house ?

Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its new title a couple of years ago by RICS. We would suggest that you have the Building Survey for the house you are thinking of buying. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a mid 20th century of later unmodified Frampton Cotterell house built out of conventional building materials. There are certain restrictions exist with any survey - a local Frampton Cotterell surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) open up the structure of the property or advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.
