HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Witney and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Witney property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Witney property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems for Witney home? Can the Witney Home Buyers Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. In Witney's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's

stability and affecting the property itself., such as separation of the skirting board from the floor. A Witney surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

I am buying a building near Butter Cross , will this affect the property's value?

Butter Cross is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can certainly enhance the desirability of an area. Other nearby sites of interest include Earthwork At Lowbarrow Farm, Eynsham Abbey (Site Of) and Eynsham Market Cross.. A RICS valuer will include many regional factors when conducting homebuyer report in Witney. See the English Heritage site for further information on Butter Cross.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we investigate downspouts? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which heavy rainfall has on your property is rarely considered properly by buyers. One indication that drainage systems are under performing is mildew or damp in the roof, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
