Home Buyers Survey in Glastonbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Glastonbury and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Glastonbury property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations on the Glastonbury property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Glastonbury property's condition as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be an infestation at the property we're buying, but we are not certain. Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Any questions about pests affecting a Glastonbury building may not be asked by the lawyer. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for pest problems may include use of insecticides.

If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will the Home Buyers Survey look into this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Issues range from sub-soil shrinkage to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Glastonbury house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a house in the region Station Road Landfill Site near Ashcott Heath and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial rubbish disposal. There are thousands of sites affect many thousands of people throughout the UK including Glastonbury. Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health concerns such as birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Glastonbury RICS surveyors will notice structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Mendip Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
