About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Radcliffe on Trent

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Radcliffe on Trent and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Radcliffe on Trent property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Radcliffe on Trent property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a possibility of damaged blue asbestos insulating board concealed in the maisonette. What is asbestos and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a harmful material. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. rain water goods. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in gutters for example. Technically all forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken never to displace it and expert advice should be sought urgently. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Radcliffe on Trent building survey. They will report on potential asbestos during the Radcliffe on Trent survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties cause issues for buyers? Which major problems should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of property in Radcliffe on Trent. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Radcliffe on Trent and are looking for a 70s residence with brick. What suggestions can a Radcliffe on Trent surveyor make? Is age a factor?

Brick houses in Radcliffe on Trent will show signs of various issues and defects. These can include crypto-florescence or vertical cracking. One serious matter is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Janusz S, 90 Llwyni Dr, Connah's Quay, Deeside, CH5 4NJ on 01244 819003 for a quote for repair work.

Buyers in Radcliffe on Trent should consider that a number of popular courses and methods may be found throughout England and Wales. As an example, Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one.

If the Radcliffe on Trent surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I should be wary of when planning to buy a home in Radcliffe on Trent inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local councils. Surveyors in Radcliffe on Trent must possess relevant knowledge of local area issues and the effect they have with the property. Values will be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to the areas being in good order. However many conservation areas are falling into disrepair for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Property surveyors will advise you whether the property is/might be in a conservation area and Section I of a Radcliffe on Trent Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic extensions to the building should be noted, however these should be investigated by the lawyer. Ives & Co are based in The Forge, Rushcliffe, Nottinghamshire, NG12 5NB might be happy to help. Tel: 0115 937 2408

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Factors from fungal decay to low-grade construction materials can cause problems for a property-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a range of issues. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure. Signs like a hard-to-open living room door or cracks along the living room floor can be early indications of very serious structural issues. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered.
