HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Long Sutton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Long Sutton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Long Sutton property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I should be wary of when buying a converted house in Long Sutton near a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority. Surveyors in Long Sutton are required by RICS to possess knowledge of local factors and the relation they have on the property. Values is typically higher due to them being unspoilt. However a growing number have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are expected inform you if the home looks to be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by your legal representation. Unsympathetic adjustments to the building will also be noted, however these should be concern for your lawyer. Mossop & Bowser are a local firm situated

Gas flame

Will a Long Sutton surveyor check the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

The RICS chartered surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances like prefabricated flues. Gas fittings will not however be dislodged. Most people are aware that gas can be hazardous, should you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords must to complete appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Long Sutton home built in the late 50s, but it has clay foundations. Will your Long Sutton Property Survey look into this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Long Sutton house. Issues range from moisture changes in the soil to considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Drought, for instance, can have a contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable separation of the skirting board from the floor, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
