Which Home Survey is the right choice for my intended property purchase ?

    A Homebuyer Report should be chosen when you are purchasing a property made of standard building materials such as tile & brick, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Ravensthorpe and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Ravensthorpe property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Ravensthorpe property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a building close to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms including domestic waste disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in Ravensthorpe will notice structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency database and Kirklees Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have learnt that clay soil can be the source of maintenance problems for houses in Ravensthorpe. Does the Home Survey cover this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a property. 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. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Ravensthorpe property's foundations, forcing them inward.

Taking precautions, such as removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may rainfall have on our new property? Will the Ravensthorpe home buyers survey report on this? Could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Ravensthorpe and across the country, but the impact heavy rain can have on Ravensthorpe homes is often overlooked by property buyers. One indication that drainage are blocked is a waterlogged garden. Poor drainage can lead to damage to foundations.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
