About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Goodwick

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Goodwick and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Goodwick property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Goodwick property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Goodwick. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the Goodwick house surveyor look for?

Questions like this are often asked of house surveyors by Goodwick home buyers who are aware that property can often hide roof maintenance problems. From eaves to parapet walls, many parts of the roof and loft will be taken into account. Your house surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Goodwick, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor in the local area can provide one.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. What should we expect a Goodwick Property Survey to include, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a home's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. 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.
