HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Hopton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Hopton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Hopton property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Hopton, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Does a Hopton Property Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Issues range from severe changes in the water table level to swelling of the soil, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Hopton property's foundations, forcing them inward. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like swift repair of any collapsed drains. Small areas of sodden soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a maisonette next to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. commercial refuse disposal. No one would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health issues like abdominal wall problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Hopton will notice structural defects connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Great Yarmouth Local Authority and advise you .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a garage) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a surveyor valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost. In order to determine the valuation your chartered surveyor will take into account awareness of the Hopton property market and other things about the property for instance: state of repair Surveyors also reflect on construction type and will make certain other assumptions, for example there are no dangerous materials. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local area assumptions, like issues with access, are made as well as any significant Hopton environmental concerns like mining activity, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
