HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Lingfield and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Lingfield property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Lingfield property's condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Lingfield, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the house surveyor check for any flood damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Met Office). If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a HomeBuyer Report will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect residential property enables the house surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a maisonette in the region a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. inert waste material disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health problems like abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Lingfield surveyors will note any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Tandridge Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Lingfield? Can my House Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

Whether a home was built in 17011 or 20011, factors as varied as heavy rainfall or mould can create inconvenience for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a number of issues, with subsidence being a common example. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious effect on clay soil, squeezing the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property, such as sticking window frames. There is a real benefit in booking a Lingfield surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
