HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Little Mill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Little Mill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Little Mill property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Little Mill Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a property near to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. commercial waste disposal. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks might include heavy metals. Health problems such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice any structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases and Monmouthshire Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can your Little Mill House Survey investigate this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects, with moisture changes in the soil and considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content being relatively common. 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.. For example, widening cracks may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently. 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.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the house we're buying, but we are not certain. What should we do?

Little Mill purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. An affected house may not always be easy to identify. As an example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Treatment for an infestation may include insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber. The Little Mill surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.
