HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Moss Nook and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Moss Nook property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Moss Nook property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will the Moss Nook Building Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects, with subsidence being a common example. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. There is a real benefit in booking a Moss Nook

surveyor to carry out your Property Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. 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 an old property. Will maintenance costs be higher?

A building's age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Properties constructed with traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic brings up bad memories for us. What does a Moss Nook house surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This is often asked by home buyers who know that homes can be blighted by roofing woes, like missing tiles. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the slates to the roof battens. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Moss Nook, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a builder from the area can provide one. Call John Wilson Roofing & Property Services of 107 Bedford Rd, Southport, PR8 4HR on 0161-401 1239 for a quote.
