HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Brewood and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Brewood property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Brewood property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle beneath the structure's own weight. A builder should return to a new house after some months in order to make repairs.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the outside walls, or noticeable widening cracks which have remained stable for some time, may indicate subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been

damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. 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.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Brewood home with a loft conversion - What will our home surveyor investigate during the survey?

Properties in Brewood with no other major issues may be exposed to roofing problems, such as. From decking to collar ties, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

The expense of a complete replacement, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the reason to go for a full structural survey if purchasing a defective end of terrace townhouse in Brewood as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes called a Full Structural Survey, it is now defunct and has actually been reclassified by RICS and the proper name is actually now the Building Survey. The Building Survey is now the correct survey to choose if buying an unusual house e.g. an older house in Brewood. It specifies notable professional advice on the homes standard of construction and repair along with any needs for future maintenance after a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts of the house.
