Home Buyers Survey in Vauxhall

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Vauxhall and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

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

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the Vauxhall property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a property proximate to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous waste material. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns such as abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Vauxhall surveyors will flag up any structural defects connected with the site. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing searches of the Landmark database as well as Lambeth Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have read that clay soil can create issues for property in Vauxhall. What should we expect a Home Buyers Survey to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Vauxhall home will have an impact. Specific issues include swelling of the soil. 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.. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable small cracks in the kitchen wall, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable.
