Home Buyers Survey in Todwick

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Todwick and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Todwick property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Todwick property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have been informed that clay soil can be a source of difficulty for homes in Todwick. Will your Todwick Home Survey look into this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Todwick buyers. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the drawing room wall to warped window frames in the drawing room. Steps like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. 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.

Deteriorated timber

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Todwick house or flat what effect will a Condition rating 2 have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

Quite a common example is buckled or cracked plywood or hardboard elements. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. The type and condition of such components are reported on. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. This may not be urgent, however.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a flat in the region a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: industrial waste. Nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include tars and other hazardous materials. Health problems such as gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will find any structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Rotherham Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect may rainfall have on a building in Todwick? Will the RICS surveyor in Todwick report on this? Also, if there is necessary work, will they be troublesome to fix?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which heavy rain has on a house is usually overlooked by property buyers. One indication that gutters are a cause for concern is streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. Whether buying in Todwick or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy, if not neglected. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
