HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Bewdley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Bewdley property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Bewdley property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects. Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Buyers in Bewdley should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. Your chartered surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder suggested subsidence is a concern affecting the home. What can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be put right. Generally, a builder will return to a new building after some months in order to repair settlement damage.

A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. For example, water leaking from a broken pipes will wash soil away from the foundations. This can effectively reduce the volume of the soil surrounding the structure, meaning it can no longer support the weight of the building. Signs of potential subsidence include new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a converted barn and the estate agent has stated that it has been built with Hopton Wood stone. Are there specific problems to bear in mind, and what does the survey cover?

From Purbeck Royal Bed Limestone to Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, contact a Bewdley expert. Merchants at 78-80 Load St, Bewdley, DY12 2AW, for example, could assist.
