HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Tutbury and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Tutbury 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.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Tutbury property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Tutbury Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. What should we expect a HomeBuyer Report to include?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. 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. Steps like ensuring rainwater goods and

drainage all function efficiently can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Isolated patches of wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of if buying a building next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. non-hazardous rubbish. Nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries might include methane gas generation. Potential health issues like spina bifida have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will flag up any structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to South Derbyshire Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What suggestions can a surveyor in Tutbury make for a 70s home with brick walls?

Tutbury brick-walled homes can be affected by diverse problems. An issue of particular concern is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Hewitt Mark should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 07973 700976 or 145 Barn La, Solihull, B92 7LY.

For example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
