HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Broseley and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Broseley property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Broseley property's condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the building survey consider possible flood damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity could all cause major water damage caused by flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residential property in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Broseley area likely to affect the home also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a apartment in Broseley and spotted cracks down the gable wall, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence issues does the Property Surveyor report on?

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 Broseley and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. In some older homes cracks appear in the Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials contract, absorbing more moisture.

There are a number of factors capable of causing subsidence to Broseley homes. For example, water leaking from a damaged drains will remove layers of soil from around the foundations. By reducing the volume of the subsoil, the earth is more readily displaced by the weight of the property. In serious weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.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. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning involves holes being dug 1 metre long and around 1.5 metres deep, along all affected sections of wall, and just beneath the present foundations. Reinforcement bars and concrete are then inserted into these pits to support the structure, as the rest of the foundations are dug out and similarly filled in with concrete. 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.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a dovecot. What consequences will the rafter roof have on repairs?

Some buyers have considered buying a house with personality, like a farmstead. Older construction methods and materials, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Broseley homes constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required.
