HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Desborough and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Desborough property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the Desborough property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Desborough property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things I need to be aware of when planning to buy a building in Desborough near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority. Your surveyor need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and any bearing they have on the building and its value. Property Prices are generally greater because of them being unspoilt.

Surveyors are expected report whether the location looks to be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are carried out by your solicitor. Unconsented changes to the property may be reported in the Desborough survey but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A house we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Does a Property Survey discuss soil composition the report?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Desborough property will have an impact. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable minor wall cracks in the garage, to complete structural failure. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Desborough, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. 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.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a converted barn with Wooton stone walls. What should we be particularly aware of?

Repair costs for stone-built homes in Desborough can be higher than for more standard. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to homes in Desborough, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in door construction. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Maintenance tips include replacing missing or badly worn stones. If you are planning to renovate, consider that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
