Home Buyers Survey in Claverdon

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Claverdon and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Claverdon property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give comprehensive details of the Claverdon property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any issues I would need to consider when intending to buy a home in Claverdon inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority. Claverdon surveyors are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of local considerations and the bearing they have with the property. House prices is, more often than not, significantly higher owing to conservation areas being preserved.

Surveyors can be expected to advise if the home looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out during the conveyancing process. Unapproved adjustments to the property may also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer. Penmans are a local firm situated at The Precinct, Stratford-on-Avon, Warwickshire, CV35 9NL might be happy to advise. Tel: 01789 470022

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a maisonette near to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: hazardous rubbish disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include complex organic chemicals. Potential health concerns like cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Claverdon will notice any structural issues linked to the site. Your legal representative will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Stratford-on-Avon Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get brick upkeep suggestions for the property in Claverdon we are purchasing?

Brick-constructed properties do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also suffer from considerable issues. This could be anything from spalling to frost damage. Such defects will be discussed in the report along with recommendations. An especially severe issue is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Booth S at 10 Roche Gardens, Cheadle Hulme, Cheadle, SK8 7QT should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0161-440 0013.

Brick-constructed property can be found across the UK, leading to a range of techniques. As an example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Claverdon property and am a little concerned that the foundations are at risk. What should we expect a Claverdon Building Survey to include?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Visible results may be anything from cracked plaster to warped window frames in the kitchen. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. 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.
