HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Bredon and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Bredon property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Bredon property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about vermin. Will a chartered surveyor look into this?

Bredon houses are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Treatment for an infestation may include traps or removal or excision of affected timber. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a house in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including domestic rubbish. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks might include heavy metals .

Bredon surveyors will flag up structural problems connected with the site. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Malvern Hills Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The seller said subsidence might be a problem. How could this affect the property, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the HomeBuyer Report?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new home after time has passed so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise parts of the property's foundations. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Bredon surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.
