Home Buyers Survey in Bottesford

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Bottesford and which is cheaper?

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

If the Bottesford property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works on the Bottesford property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Bottesford property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Bottesford? Will the RICS surveyor report on this? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

Both in Bottesford, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rain can have on property is rarely paid due attention. One indication that downspouts are a cause for concern is rusted iron elements. Poor drainage can lead to lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost. However, if the drains are not unblocked on a regular basis, 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.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a flat next to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including industrial waste disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include tars and other hazardous materials. Health concerns like gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Bottesford RICS surveyors will find structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to North Lincolnshire Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the property we plan to buy. Do we need a residential surveyor?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to pest problems can include professional cleaning. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor mentioned subsidence may be a problem affecting the house. What subsidence issues does the Property Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be set right. Additionally, most homes in Bottesford are erected with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Superficial cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, possibly as a result of lower-quality materials.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
