HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Flint and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Flint property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the Flint property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Flint home and am quite worried that there is a danger of subsidence. Can the Flint Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Clay soil can create numerous issues for property owners. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Signs like a hard-to-open living room door can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies.

Taking precautions, such as ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I would need to verify if buying a property in Flint inside a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Surveyors in Flint are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local issues and any connection they have on the building and its value. House prices is, more often than not, inflated which is down to the areas retaining original features.

Surveyors are trained to note whether the location is possibly is so classified and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted during the legal process. Unauthorised developments to the property may also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your legal adviser.
