HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Bromham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Bromham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give comprehensive details of the Bromham property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Bromham, what effect can a an red light rating have on factors covered in Section E?

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Bromham are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. An example defect for this is steps that spring or sag when used. This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a dovecot. Will repairs costs be higher?

Older construction methods and materials can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Buildings featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Construction materials, such as original bricks, may also need to be sourced. This can end up costing more than initially budgeted. Contact your surveyor for more information. Erected between 1486 and 1319, Church of St Nicholas, Bayntun Chapel in Bromham is a traditional chapel of the time.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Bromham could be a problem. What are the risks, and what subsidence-related matters will the Chartered Surveyor look into?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a building which compromises its structural integrity. Most buildings experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. New buildings in Bromham and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. In general, homes in Bromham are built with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

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 organic material, which begins to rot, can also destabilise parts of the property's foundations. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Using large concrete pins, placed beneath current foundations and extending deep into the ground, underpinning is expensive, totalling £1000s, but it can be very effective. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
