Home Buyers Survey in Broughton In Furness

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Broughton In Furness and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Broughton In Furness property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Broughton In Furness property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Broughton In Furness home built in the mid 30s, but it has clay foundations. Will a House Survey look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Broughton In Furness can have unwanted consequences, with subsidence being a common example. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Signs like a sticking door in the living room or minor wall cracks in the living room can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Broughton In Furness, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. 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.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we should on guard for if buying a home in Broughton In Furness in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local councils. Broughton In Furness surveyors are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local issues and any relation may have with the property and its value. House prices are typically significantly higher because of them retaining original features.

Surveyors are expected advise you whether the building looks like it may be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted by your legal adviser. Out of keeping modifications to the building may also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer. Thomas Butler & Son are based in Syke House, South Lakeland, Cumbria, LA20 6ER and may be happy to help. Tel: 01229 716306

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this property is located in a low lying part of Broughton In Furness. Is there a major flood risk? Would our house surveyor check for signs of water damage?

The lives of many owners in Broughton In Furness and across the UK have been impacted by water damage caused by flooding, and property purchasers and owners are understandably concerned.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. The survey report may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The home surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
