HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Hambleton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hambleton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Hambleton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Hambleton Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. What should we expect a Hambleton House Survey to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact. Specific issues include soil movement. 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.. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Hambleton home's foundations, forcing them inward. A Hambleton surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in Hambleton - What will our building surveyor in Hambleton keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This is a common concern for buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Houses across Hambleton could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes. From the dormers to the ridge flashing, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as insulating the attic) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing specialist in Hambleton for the job itself.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Hambleton with stone walls generate high upkeep costs? What should we look in to? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Beer Limestone to Portland Roach Limestone. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, contact a Hambleton expert, including Lancashire Cast Stone, Garstang Rd, Pilling, Preston, PR3 6AL (Phone: 01524 388501).
