Do you need a Home Buyers Survey? Which of the 3 should you select?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Blythe Bridge and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Blythe Bridge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Blythe Bridge property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor look into the state of the gas appliances?

Your will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters as part of the Blythe Bridge survey, in addition to gas related gas installations in the house like flue/chimney maintenance. Should there be any external fittings they won't actually be removed. Gas is potentially deadly and if there are any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer without delay.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The stretcher bond walls on this Blythe Bridge property is badly worn - what should we do? Is age a factor?

Blythe Bridge brick-walled houses can suffer from numerous defects. For instance, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including London Elite Brickwork Contractors of 82 Gloucester Rd, Hampton, TW12 2UJ on 07530 225257.

Buyers in Blythe Bridge should consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours have been used across the country for centuries. As an example, Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a 1971-built home in Blythe Bridge and spotted cracks down the gable wall. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor look into?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water can collect in the ground, which causes the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Non-structural cracks not caused by subsidence can be filled and repainted. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Willow trees, for example, are often the culprits of serious subsidence. Buyers are often surprised to learn that a willow tree should be planted no neared than 40m from a home. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
