HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Mildenhall and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Mildenhall property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Mildenhall property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rain an issue in Mildenhall? Will the building survey report on this? And could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which heavy rain has on houses in Mildenhall is not given more thought by property buyers. If you have only been to the residence in on a dry day, problems are unlikely to be visible, and may lead to water damage. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix if dealt with quickly.However, the damage caused, where untreated or poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Can a Mildenhall Home Buyers Survey investigate this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a house's foundations can create difficulties. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Mildenhall house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. A Mildenhall surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. 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.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this residence is located in a low lying area. Is there a major flood risk? Would our building survey consider flooding damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity can all result in extensive flooding damage. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a house survey will inform your decision. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flood water can enter a Mildenhall property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
