HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Swadlincote and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Swadlincote property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Swadlincote property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Swadlincote house built in the late 70s, but it has clay foundations. Will the Swadlincote Home Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Swadlincote buyers. In Swadlincote's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. For example, cracked plaster may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Swadlincote, your surveyor will consider the

impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a home near to W R G Bretby No 1 Landfill Site near Main Street and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: non-hazardous waste material. There are 1, 000's of sites affect many thousands of people throughout the UK including Swadlincote. Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Swadlincote will consider any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to South Derbyshire Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to investigate guttering? And could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is rarely paid due attention by property buyers. One indication that rainwater goods are damaged is spalling masonry.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
