HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hoylake and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hoylake property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Hoylake property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Hoylake, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Does a Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Hoylake can have unwanted consequences, with shrinking of clay soil and considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content being relatively common. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Hoylake home's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage.

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. 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 I be concerned about when buying a maisonette in the region a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: inert refuse. No one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Surveys in Hoylake will notice any structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Wirral Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it best to commission a full structural survey before acquiring a derelict Victorian house in Hoylake?

Structural surveys are now reclassified as the Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a 60 year old or less unmodified Hoylake house built out of standard construction materials and methods i.e. brick and tile. The Building Survey is certainly the proper survey to choose in relation to the house described. Following an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts, the chartered surveyors report will be dispatched to the purchaser going through any crucial information about the condition of the house.

There are certain no go areas with a property survey because a RICS surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Hoylake house e.g. undoing electrical fittings.
