Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it necessary to get a full structural survey prior to investing in a un-loved, fifties converted flat near Wotton under Edge?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now called the Building Survey. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a mid century or later unmodified Wotton under Edge flat built out of conventional construction materials. The Building Survey is definitely the most suitable survey to opt for the flat described. After a thorough site survey of any accessible parts of the flat, a formal report will be dispatched to the prospective purchaser going through in depth and crucial information in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the flat. There are certain provisos with a property survey to bear in mind as a local surveyor is not able to open up the fabric of the of the Wotton under Edge flat e.g. removing roof space contents. Over and above house surveys, flats mean access to the building can be prevented, and your appointed surveyor will only give details on the actual flat although he/she comment on communal sections of the property for example general security.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Wotton under Edge home and am quite worried that the building might be in danger of movement. Will the Home Buyers Survey consider this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property will have an impact. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Signs like a sticking door in the kitchen or widening cracks can be early indications of very serious structural issues. 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. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
