HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Trowbridge and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Trowbridge property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Trowbridge property's state of repair and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can heavy rainfall have on a Trowbridge home? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the impact rainfall can have on a property is overlooked by home buyers. One indication that drainage are blocked is rotten roofing elements. Poor drainage can lead to overflowing or blocked sewage.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy, if not neglected. If not maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Traditionally built property

I am buying an older coast house in Trowbridge. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

For houses in Trowbridge built before the 20th Century, age can create issues for homeowners. Trowbridge structures employing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find .

Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Does a Trowbridge Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Issues range from sub-soil shrinkage to considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. 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! A Trowbridge surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. 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.
