HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Isle Of Wight and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Isle Of Wight property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Isle Of Wight property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can the Isle Of Wight Building Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a property's foundations can create difficulties. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. 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 checking that the downpipe drains correctly can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a property near to Apsecastle Wood Pit Landfill Site and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including industrial refuse disposal. There are thousands of sites affect 100, 000's people in the UK including Isle Of Wight. Risks include structurally instability. Health concerns for example birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Isle Of Wight will flag up any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as Isle of Wight Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Substandard guttering

For the Isle Of Wight HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a green light rating have on rainwater pipes and gutters?

A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the home being surveyed does not need urgent attention. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. One example issue could be too few roof drains. The rainwater goods are inspected by eye. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system.
