HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Coleshill and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Coleshill property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Coleshill property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Coleshill? Will a House Survey look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. 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. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Coleshill home's foundations, forcing them inward. There is a real benefit in booking a Coleshill surveyor to carry out your Home Buyers Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Isolated patches of waterlogged soil can just as easily

warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Stone block wall damage

Can houses built with stone create upkeep problems for a new owner? Are there specific issues to bear in mind?

From Swaledale Fossil Limestone to Beer Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include deteriorating bedding. Stone quarried in the area is common to local properties in Coleshill, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a home close to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including hazardous waste material. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns might include structurally instability. Potential health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Coleshill will find any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Solihull Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
