HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Clun and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Clun property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Clun property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Clun Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor mentioned subsidence is a problem affecting the flat. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence information does the Clun Building Survey include?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a house and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement will often occur in more modern houses, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months. Most homes are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Cracks that appear without warning could indicate subsidence. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. In

serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning is a lengthy process used to stabilise the foundations of a property, and is required in around a quarter of subsidence matters. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Clun, and can a Clun building survey investigate signs of flooding?

A wide variety of factors can cause water damage caused by flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. In addition, the house survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage. The surveyor may ask the estate agent if the home in Clun has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

The River Teme, River Onny and River Corve & their tributaries upstream of Ludlow, near Clun, was given an updated status of 'No warnings' on 2/01/13, by the Environment Agency.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Clun, and think we saw signs of pests in the attic. What advice should we get?

Property are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Regrettably, pest problems can be costly to fix and carry serious health risks. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies.

Treatment for pest problems may include traps.
