Home Buyers Survey in Caister On Sea

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Caister On Sea and which is cheaper?

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

If the Caister On Sea property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Caister On Sea property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a house next to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including inert waste. Nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health issues for example downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Caister On Sea will note any structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Great Yarmouth Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Caister On Sea, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will your Property Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property will have an impact. Specific issues include soil movement. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies.

Taking precautions, such as taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
