Home Buyers Survey in Rye

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Rye and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Rye property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Rye property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Rye. What advice would the home surveyor give in their report?

Rye residences in otherwise fine condition can still be subject to difficulties with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormers, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A local roofing specialist with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote. Speak to RPJ Leadwork & Roofing Ltd of 107 Military Rd, Rye, TN31 7NZ on 01797 226206 to request an estimate.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have been told that Rye properties built on clay soil can experience problems. Will a House Survey look into this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a house's foundations can create difficulties, with compression of layers of the sub-soil and considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content being relatively common. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Visible results may be anything from cracked plaster to a sticking door in the kitchen. A Rye surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
