HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in North Cheam and which is cheaper?

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

If the North Cheam property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have learnt that clay soil can create problems for buildings in North Cheam. Will a North Cheam Property Survey look into this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a house's foundations can create difficulties. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Visible results may be anything from separation of the skirting board from the floor to a hard-to-open lounge door. There is a

real benefit in booking a North Cheam surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, 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.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does high levels of rainfall have on our new North Cheam house? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Regular rainfall is common in North Cheam and across the country, but the effect which heavy rain has on a structure is often overlooked by purchasers.

Signs that drainage systems are at risk include damp stains around drainage. This could then result in rising damp.

In most cases, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to resolve.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 16th Century cottage in North Cheam. What effect will the building's rafter roof have on upkeep?

Some purchasers hope to own property with real personality. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can create issues for homeowners. Property showcasing traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional materials may be required. This may mean long-term upkeep. If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your building surveyor for more information.
