HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Wylam property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Wylam property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the late 30s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to cause difficulties? Will your Home Buyers Survey look into this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Issues range from groundwater level variations to considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change, such as widening cracks.

Taking precautions, such as ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable.

The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Damage resulting from flooding

When planning to purchase in Wylam, should we be nervous about a flood risk, and will the house surveyor look for possible flood damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flood water can enter a Wylam house through several routes, including loose patio doors. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Wylam 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.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a maisonette in the region a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including domestic waste disposal. Nobody wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include complex organic chemicals. Potential health problems like cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Wylam surveyors will notice structural problems linked to the site. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Northumberland Local Authority and advise you .
