HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Barton Upon Humber and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Barton Upon Humber property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Barton Upon Humber property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a home in Barton Upon Humber and spotted that there is a 9mm crack above the windows in the kitchen. What subsidence-related matters will the Chartered Surveyor look into?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new house within a few months to make good any settlement cracks.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would need to be conscious of if buying a converted flat in Barton Upon Humber in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Surveyors in Barton Upon Humber are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and any effect they have on the home and its value. House prices will be inflated as a result of conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many areas have fallen into poor condition for example - out of keeping extensions

Property surveyors are trained to tell you if the house looks to be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Barton Upon Humber Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by your legal adviser. Unauthorised changes to the property may be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your legal representative.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Barton Upon Humber, and think we saw signs of pests in the basement - What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, pest problems can be costly to fix and affect the health of residents. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for pest problems may include use of insecticides and removal of infected furniture.
