About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Coxhoe

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Coxhoe and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Coxhoe property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Coxhoe property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Does the Building Survey cover this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Coxhoe home, with subsidence being a common example. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! 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. 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.

Traditionally built property

What should we think about when purchasing a house built in around 1770 in Coxhoe? What impact will the house's design have on repairs?

Some buyers would be interested in owning property with real personality. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Houses employing traditional methods can be a drain to repair. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. If you plan to make alterations to a period home, discuss options with the surveyor for more detail.
