HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Rossendale and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Rossendale property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension on the Rossendale property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Rossendale property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Rossendale properties at risk, and does a building survey inquire into flood damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house in Rossendale lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

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 retaining wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report on a Rossendale building will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. To properly appraise the correct valuation your surveyor will take into account experience of property in Rossendale and other considerations relating to the property e.g. accommodation. Surveyors also reflect on construction type and draw upon other assumptions, for example there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Further area assumptions, such as use of communal facilities or the property being insurable, are made in addition to local environmental problems like Rossendale planning proposals (e.g flight path), which will also be factored in.

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

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What negative impact does clay soil have on a property's foundations? Will the Rossendale House Survey consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! There is a real benefit in booking a Rossendale surveyor to carry out your Home Survey, 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.
