HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Tewkesbury and which is cheaper?

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

If the Tewkesbury property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Tewkesbury property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Tewkesbury Homebuyers Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of if buying a flat close to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including non-hazardous waste material. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns might include methane gas generation. Potential health issues such as spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Tewkesbury will consider any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Tewkesbury Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a property in Tewkesbury - What advice should we get?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include use of poison and destruction of tainted materials. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Tewkesbury home built in the late 90s, but it has clay foundations. Can the Home Buyers Survey consider this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Specific problems include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property.
