HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Mundesley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Mundesley property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Mundesley property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the Home Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. There is a real benefit in booking a Mundesley

surveyor to carry out your House Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there are asbestos ceiling boards in the maisonette. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including asbestos packing in stud walls.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding properties, it may be found in central heating flues. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to displace it and professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will report on possible asbestos and will offer advice.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can heavy rain have on our new home? Will the RICS surveyor in Mundesley report on this?

Both in Mundesley, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rain can have on a structure is not given more thought by buyers. One indication that rainwater goods are a cause for concern is a waterlogged garden. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Luckily, problems with drains are usually easy to repair, if identified early. If poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
