Which Building Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can the Kings Lynn House Survey consider this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Issues range from moisture changes in the soil to soil swelling, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Visible results may be anything from separation of the skirting board from the floor to a hard-to-open bedroom door. A Kings Lynn surveyor

will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a property near to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms including industrial waste material disposal. No one wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include structurally instability. Health problems like abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Kings Lynn will examine structural defects linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as King's Lynn and West Norfolk Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Building Surveys on apartments

I am buying a un-loved Victorian apartment home - should I opt for a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as the Building Survey. When buying an altered Kings Lynn apartment like a property in poor condition house, this is now the most suitable choice of home survey. It will typically give comprehensive and crucial insight about the property's construction and uses along with any technical details, shortly after a thorough inspection of the accessible parts of the house.

There are a few restrictions with any residential survey because the surveyor cannot (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Kings Lynn apartment e.g. undoing electrical fittings.
