About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Frant

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Frant and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Frant property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Frant property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a home partially constructed Cotswold stone. Are there specific potential issues to bear in mind?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of buildings. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Stone quarried in the area is common to local buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes use of traditional methods to maintain older walls. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Frant, and can a Frant building survey look for possible flooding?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m homes are in danger of water damage caused by flooding, and the value of a residential property in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before flood damage occurs. Flood water can enter a house in Frant through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Frant area likely to affect the house in Frant also enables the house surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Frant house built in the early 30s, but it has clay foundations. Can we expect the Frant Building Survey to mention this?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. 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.. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Frant house's foundations, forcing them inward.

Taking precautions, such as ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable.
