HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Grays and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Grays property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Grays property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Grays. What will we need to look out for when purchasing an older property? Will the residence's age be an issue?

Some buyers hope to own a unique or characterful property. Use of traditional methods, however, can concern buyers. Grays structures employing traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can make the final cost hard to predict. Contact the surveyor for more detail.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the Grays Home Buyers Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a house, with subsidence being a common example. 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.. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the lounge to a hard-to-open lounge door. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. Patches of sodden soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a house near to Medebridge Road Landfill on Medebridge Road and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous waste disposal. Thousands of sites affect 100, 000's people in England including Grays. Concerns might include heavy metals. Health concerns such as abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Grays will find any structural problems resulting from the site. Your lawyer will conduct conveyancing searches of the Landmark data sets and Thurrock Local Authority and advise you .
