HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Brading and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Brading property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Brading property's general condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

For more information why not obtain a Brading House Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a property in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including industrial waste material. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Risks might include heavy metals. Health concerns like gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Brading will flag up structural defects linked to the site. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Isle of Wight Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Brading HomeBuyer Report to mention 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. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table, such as minor wall cracks in the lounge. A Brading surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. 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.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the Brading property we're buying, but we are not certain - Will the Full Structural Survey investigate this?

Homes are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. An affected property may not always be easy to identify. As an example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like Hillbans Pest Control, 7 Lake Industrial Way, Newport Road, Lake, Sandown, Isle of Wight, PO36 9PL, or call them on 0198 340 6999.
