HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Audley and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Audley property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Audley property's state of repair as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need London brick maintenance advice, can a Audley surveyor help?

Brick-built Audley residential property feature several advantages. Unfortunately, they also indicate considerable issues, such as spalling.

A defect often found is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. M G L Building Services should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 0118-942 8178 or 26 Riley Road, Tilehurst, Reading, RG30 4UX.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems for Audley house? Will a Home Survey look into this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Audley house. Issues range from shrinking of clay soil to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Signs like a hard-to-open garage door can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Steps like ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently 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.
