Home Buyers Survey in Amble

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Amble and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

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

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Amble property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a house built in the late 60s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the cause of many issues? What should we expect a Amble Property Survey to include, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property will have an impact. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Signs like warped window frames in the kitchen or minor wall cracks in the kitchen can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Steps like avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. 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.
