HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Brigg and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Brigg property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Brigg property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent warned us that access to the attic could be an issue, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our chartered surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors. Many homes can be blighted by roofing woes, like bad drainage. From gables to collar beams, all aspects of the roof should be reported on. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a flat in Brigg and found that windows in the garage did not line up, could this be evidence of subsidence? What possible solutions are to available to fix this?

Movement of the foundations of a building is called subsidence. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture accumulates below ground level. This may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, possibly as a result of lower-quality materials.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a residence in Brigg, does the Brigg surveyor search for any flood damage?

Heavy rain, drains blocked with sewage or soil and burst pipes can cause flooding. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a property survey will inform your decision. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.
