HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Guisborough and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Guisborough property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Guisborough property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Guisborough include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate

A Homebuyer Report on a Guisborough property will contain a professional valuation and will also include a Reinstatement Cost. To fully consider the correct valuation your independent surveyor will factor in area knowledge and other factors about the property for instance: number of bedrooms The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and will use other assumptions like the ground is not land filled. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

It will be assumed that there are no significant legal problems like no troublesome covenants. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Additional local Guisborough area assumptions, like services, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like busy roads, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What effect does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Will the Guisborough Building Survey consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house in Guisborough can have unwanted consequences, with moisture changes in the soil and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. In Guisborough's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. For example, cracked plaster may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation.

Taking precautions, such as ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a house near to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: hazardous refuse disposal. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include methane gas generation. Health issues for example congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Guisborough will examine structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the Landmark databases as well as Redcar and Cleveland Local Authority and advise you .
