About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Mobberley

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Mobberley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Mobberley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Mobberley property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Mobberley house surveyor investigate water damage?

It is estimated that over two million properties are in danger of flooding. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a Mobberley property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The survey 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 residents, but this information may not be accurate.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will your Home Survey look into this, and what defects will be reported on?

Whether a home was built in 1706 or 2006, factors as varied as low-grade construction materials or damp can create problems for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in several issues, with subsidence being a common example. In Mobberley's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. Signs like sticking doors can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Steps like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. 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.
