HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Melton Constable and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Melton Constable property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Melton Constable property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get an instant Melton Constable Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Melton Constable property and am worried about the implications of clay soil. Does the Melton Constable Property Survey cover this, and what defects will be reported on?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Melton Constable home. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Melton Constable home's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. There is a real benefit in booking a Melton Constable surveyor to carry out your Property Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Melton Constable Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement cost estimate as standard. To estimate the valuation the surveyor will factor in area knowledge and other considerations about the property e.g. desirability of the location. Your Melton Constable surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will use key assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors ignore certain things like sales incentives. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any compromising legal issues such as no troublesome covenants. These will be investigated by your conveyancer.

Additional local Melton Constable area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to any Melton Constable environmental issues like flood plains, which will also be factored in. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be painted over, but loose asbestos situated in the apartment. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious silicate material formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types may be in building materials e.g. artex. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in the home appliances. Technically all forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to remove it. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. On no account attempt to get rid of it yourself. Melton Constable Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However they will report on potential asbestos and should inform you of the options.
