Home Buyers Survey in Exmoor

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Exmoor property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Exmoor property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a maisonette in Exmoor, does the house surveyor search for signs of water damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of home owners in Exmoor and across the country, and house buyers and owners are understandably concerned. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before water damage starts, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls. The building surveyor may ask the agent if the Exmoor home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

No recent flood alerts were found for Exmoor, according to the Environment Agency.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Exmoor, what advice would a Exmoor property surveyor give for properties constructed with Flemish bond walls?

Brick-constructed houses in Exmoor do benefit from many advantages over buildings using regular cut stone, but they can also suffer from a number of issues. This could be anything from cracks to crypto-florescence. For instance, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and should be taken very seriously. Brain Andrew H may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01453 521361 or 65 Shepherds Leaze, Wotton-Under-Edge, GL12 7LJ.

A great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a house next to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. inert waste disposal. No one would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health issues for example congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Exmoor will find structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological databases and West Somerset Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
