HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Gilberdyke and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Gilberdyke property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Gilberdyke property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have learnt that clay soil can be the cause of many issues for residential property in Gilberdyke. Can we expect the House Survey to mention this, and what defects will be reported on?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years, such as sticking window frames. There is a

real benefit in booking a Gilberdyke surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Traditionally built property

I am buying an old dovecot. What impact will the building's cruck frame have on maintenance?

Many purchasers plan to buy a home with character. Use of traditional methods, however, can create issues for homeowners. Gilberdyke homes constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for property in a conservation area, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea. Discuss this with your surveyor for more information.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a building next to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: hazardous waste disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Risks include heavy metals. Potential health concerns for example birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Gilberdyke surveyors will flag up structural defects linked to the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological data sets and East Riding of Yorkshire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
