HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Marshfield and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Marshfield property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Marshfield property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Does the Property Survey cover this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a home. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. 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, such as sticking window frames. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Marshfield, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. 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.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a property next to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including hazardous waste material. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health issues for example abdominal wall problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Marshfield surveyors will note any structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Cardiff Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Damage resulting from flooding

When planning to buy in Marshfield, should we be nervous about a flood risk, and will the residential surveyor check for possible flood damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger. The home survey may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.An awareness of characteristics of the Marshfield area likely to affect the property also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The property surveyor may ask the vendor about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
