HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Hoyland and which is cheaper?

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

If the Hoyland property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Hoyland property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Hoyland Homebuyers Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Defective door frame

For the Hoyland HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

For a Hoyland house, one issue is broken door glazing. External doors are checked, but will not force open any without keys. Broadly speaking, the security offer by these doors will be reported on.

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a house's value. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Hoyland house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a house in the region a refuse tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. industrial refuse disposal. No one wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health issues for example cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will find structural defects resulting from the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Barnsley Local Authority and advise you .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What negative impact does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Can the Hoyland Building Survey investigate this?

There are a range of problems associated with clay soil. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. 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! Steps like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
