About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Kirby Muxloe

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Kirby Muxloe and which is cheaper?

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

If the Kirby Muxloe property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works on the Kirby Muxloe property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Kirby Muxloe property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Kirby Muxloe. Is there a flood risk, and will the building survey look for indications of water damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and house purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. The HomeBuyer Report may also, where appropriate, advise appropriate repairs. The HomeBuyer Report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a maisonette next to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including inert waste. Nobody wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include complex organic chemicals .

Kirby Muxloe surveyors will find any structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Blaby Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the late 50s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the source of maintenance problems? Can my Kirby Muxloe Property Survey investigate this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. For example, cracked plaster may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. There is a real benefit in booking a Kirby Muxloe surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
