Home Buyers Survey in Wycombe Marsh

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Wycombe Marsh 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 level of survey.

If the Wycombe Marsh property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Wycombe Marsh property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a property close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. non-hazardous rubbish disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include structurally instability. Potential health issues like birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Wycombe Marsh surveyors will consider structural issues connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Aylesbury Vale Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the late 60s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to cause difficulties? Will the HomeBuyer Report consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a property. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a home's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. Steps like swift repair of any collapsed drains can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
