HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Winterton and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Winterton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Winterton property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a home close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including domestic refuse disposal. No one would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include chemicals like dioxins. Health issues for example abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Winterton will notice structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to North Lincolnshire Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Winterton property and am concerned about the deterioration of the clay soil foundations. Can my Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Winterton property will have an impact. In Winterton'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., such as small cracks in the living room ceiling. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently. 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.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Winterton. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is often asked by Winterton buyers who know that homes could feature roofing woes, like dry rot. From valley gutters to eaves, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as repairing a bowing truss) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a local contractor for the job itself.
