Home Buyers Survey in Mitcheldean

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Mitcheldean and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Mitcheldean property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Mitcheldean property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the Mitcheldean Building Survey look into this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Mitcheldean buyers. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious effect on clay soil, compromising the property's structural integrity and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property, such as sticking doors. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Mitcheldean, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a coast house in Mitcheldean. Will maintenance costs be higher?

Some buyers in Mitcheldean have looked at purchasing a old, characterful home one day. Use of traditional methods, however, can sometimes be an issue. Property built with traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential. Contact your chartered surveyor for more information.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I upgrade to full structural survey prior to acquiring a substantially modified period purpose built flat near Mitcheldean?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient for a mid century or later unmodified Mitcheldean flat of normal construction materials and methods. The Building Survey would be the advisable survey to opt for the flat described. Approximately 3 days after a thorough site survey of the accessible parts of the flat, the chartered surveyors report will be posted and emailed to the prospective purchaser going through thorough and important insight concerning the construction of the home. There are several provisos with any residential survey because the surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Mitcheldean flat such as removing secured panels. Furthermore flat conversions, by their very nature, mean the whole building cant easily be inspected. A surveyor is only able to look over the area within identifiable boundary of the flat,, he may comment on shared parts of the property like security systems.
