HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Derby and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Derby property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Derby property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a home in Derby, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the Derby surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This is frequently addressed by Derby surveyors. Many properties can still be subject to dry rot, among a range of other roofing issues. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar ties to concrete tiles, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as loft insulation) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the

sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Derby builder. Call Thorpe Roofing of 14 Mallard Court, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 2DF on 0115-922 2954 to request a quote.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a building proximate to Shardlow Quarry Landfill on ASTON-ON-TRENT and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: inert refuse disposal. Thousands of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people in England and Wales including Derby. Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health concerns like congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will find any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Derby Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the Home Buyers Survey look into this?

Clay soil can create numerous issues for house owners. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including compression of layers of the sub-soil. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a home. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable cracks along the kitchen floor, to complete structural failure. A Derby surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.
