Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Armthorpe, and the home's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will your Armthorpe Home Survey look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a property's foundations can create difficulties. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable minor wall cracks in the kitchen, to complete structural failure. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Armthorpe include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and what does it include?

Armthorpe Homebuyer Reports a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost. To be able to determine the value of the property the valuer will combine awareness of the Armthorpe property market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: state of repair. Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and will make certain key assumptions such as the ground is not land filled. Surveyors don't value certain things like furnishings, for example curtains. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any significant legal issues for example planning permissions being in order. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Further area conjectures, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like busy roads, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Traditionally built property

What should we investigate when purchasing an older property in Armthorpe? What effect will the structure's box frame structure have on upkeep?

Many buyers hope to own a home with character. Use of traditional methods, however, can sometimes be an issue. Structures built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional building materials may be required. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs.
