HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Great Harwood and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Great Harwood property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works on the property, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Great Harwood property's condition in addition to information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have read that clay soil can create issues for houses in Great Harwood. Does a Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a house. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural

failure and collapse of the whole building! A Great Harwood surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a property in Great Harwood, does the residential surveyor consider possible flood damage?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Great Harwood house in Great Harwood is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before flood damage occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A neighbour warned us about an infestation affecting some homes. What should we do?

Pests like rats may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Great Harwood.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies to a serious infestation can include use of insecticides. Your chartered surveyor may report on signs of infestation.
