Home Buyers Survey in Marlborough

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Marlborough and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Marlborough property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Marlborough property's general condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a home next to Marlborough Railway Cutting near London Road and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: domestic refuse. There are 1, 000's of sites affect many thousands of people in England including Marlborough. Worries might include structurally instability. Health problems such as gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Marlborough surveyors will find structural issues connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Wiltshire Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. What should we expect a Property Survey to include?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects, with subsidence being a common example. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Marlborough property's foundations, forcing them inward. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Marlborough, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. 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.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report in Marlborough will include a surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost estimate. To estimate the correct valuation your surveyor will call upon local property market knowledge and other things about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also examine materials used and use key assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors ignore certain things like sales incentives.

Further area assumptions, like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any Marlborough environmental issues like local industry, also being considered.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
