HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Watton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Watton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Watton property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 15th Century farmhouse. What effect will the age have on regular maintenance?

Vernacular architecture can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Watton property built with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. If you are uncertain, speak to your property surveyor for more information.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're buying in Watton. Is there a flood risk, and will the residential surveyor look for signs of flood damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and home purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before flooding begins, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Watton? Will my Watton Building Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Watton can have unwanted consequences. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Signs like a hard-to-open garage door can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Watton, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
