HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Middlewich and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Middlewich property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Middlewich property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be an issue for Middlewich home? Does the Middlewich House Survey cover this?

Whether a home was built in 1707 or 2007, factors as varied as weather or damp can create problems for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in several issues. Subsidence is a major 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. Signs like a difficult-to-open living room window can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Middlewich, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Middlewich. What will we need to bear in mind when buying a building constructed in 1780? Will the age of the residence be an issue?

Many buyers in Middlewich have looked at purchasing a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. A building's age, however, can be problematic.
