HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Langham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Langham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Langham property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the Langham home we're buying, but we are not certain. Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Any questions about pests affecting a Langham home may not be asked by the lawyer. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to pest problems can include removal of infected furniture.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the late 70s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to create problems? Can we expect the Home Survey to mention this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Issues range from sub-soil shrinkage to swelling of the soil, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the kitchen to sticking window frames. There is a real benefit in booking a Langham surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a dovecot in Langham. What consequences will the structure's thatched roof have on regular maintenance?

A building's age can sometimes be an issue. Structures built using traditional methods can be costly to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. Discuss this with your Langham surveyor for further advice.
