HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Weldon and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Weldon property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Weldon property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a property in the region a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: industrial waste material disposal. No one really wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Surveyors will notice structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Corby Local Authority and advise you .

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Weldon, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the building survey look for possible flood damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of home owners in Weldon and across the country. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The house survey may also, where appropriate, offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. The surveyor may ask the estate agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The agent has mentioned subsidence may be worth checking affecting the flat. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence information does the Weldon house survey include?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a house and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement usually occurs in newly constructed houses, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new house after six months to make good any settlement cracks.

Cracks that appear suddenly may suggest movement and subsidence. In serious weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
