Which Survey is the correct choice for my potential property purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Brighstone property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Brighstone property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice get a Brighstone Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a house close to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: hazardous waste. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health issues such as cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Brighstone will flag up structural issues connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will carry

out conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Isle of Wight Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Brighstone home and am concerned that the clay soil foundations have suffered some subsidence. Will the Brighstone Home Survey consider this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a home. Specific issues include swelling of the soil. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years, such as separation of the skirting board from the floor. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor go into detail on the state of the gas supply?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This means things like gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the property, as well as gas affiliated appliances/installations such as fixed external ventilation hearths. External fittings or housings won't however be detached. Gas is potentially hazardous, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.
