HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Bramley and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Bramley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Bramley property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a maisonette near to Thurcroft on Kingsforth Lane and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. non-hazardous waste disposal. There are 1, 000's of sites affect many thousands of people in England including Bramley. Risks might include methane gas generation. Potential health issues such as cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will find any structural problems linked to the site. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Leeds Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Bramley. Is there any London brick advice we should be aware of?? What impact do Bramley environmental conditions have?

Brick-built homes feature several advantages, but they will also be affected by various issues and defects. For instance, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and should be taken very seriously. Princes Construction should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 125 Princes Rd, Buckhurst Hill, IG9 5DX or 020 8926 7094.

Bramley home purchasers may need to consider that great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture feature in construction throughout Bramley. For example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a house in Bramley and saw evidence of there are no cracks in the brickwork outside, but cellar floor dips noticeably, could this be evidence of subsidence? Is this a serious risk, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes will experience cracking at some stage. New buildings in Bramley and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. In some older homes cracks are noticeable in Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials contract and draw in water.

A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. One such issue is that soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and start to slip downhill. In serious weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
