About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Marchington

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Marchington and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Marchington property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Marchington property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when purchasing a maisonette near to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial rubbish disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include tars and other hazardous materials. Health issues for example cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will consider structural issues linked to the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to South Derbyshire Local Authority and advise you .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an old coast house. What consequences will the age have on repairs?

Many purchasers plan to buy property with real personality. Use of traditional methods, however, can be problematic. Houses built using traditional methods can be a chore to upkeep. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Marchington? What should we expect a House Survey to include?

Clay soil can create numerous issues for house owners, with soil compaction or compression and swelling of the soil being relatively common. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure. Signs like a hard-to-open kitchen door or cracked plaster can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Marchington, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. 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.
