Home Buyers Survey in Mundesley

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Mundesley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Mundesley property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Mundesley property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the Home Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. There is a real benefit in booking a Mundesley surveyor to carry out your House Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the mid-century home I am hoping to acquire it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets - will a Mundesley Homebuyer Report write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

When carrying out a Mundesley Homebuyer Report a qualified surveyor will typically report on the state of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a hazardous state.

This will include a by sight examination of the unconcealed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of issues like the condition miniature circuit breakers or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a periodic test should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour said subsidence may be a problem. What can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle beneath the structure's own weight. The builder will likely return to a new home within a few months in order to repair settlement damage.

It is not always obvious that subsidence is at work, as the things which a surveyor will look for could quite easily be as the result of several factors. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will rot. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Mundesley , and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the roof be time consuming to arrange?

Mundesley properties in good condition can often hide issues with the roof. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar beams, ought to be checked. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing specialist in Mundesley a quote for any suggested work.
