HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Godshill and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Godshill property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Godshill property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Godshill building survey inquire into flooding?

Flooding in Godshill can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and owning a home in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before flood damage occurs.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residence, such as via seepage through walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The property surveyor will usually

recommend that the purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in the past. Will access to the property's roof be time consuming to arrange?

This is often asked by home buyers who know that homes can often hide issues with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. purlins. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like badly installed felting.

The expense of replacement of a failed dormer, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A local contractor with accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a property next to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including industrial waste material. No one wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include methane gas generation. Potential health issues for example birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Godshill will examine any structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological data sets and Isle of Wight Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
