HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Creekmouth and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Creekmouth property is a flat, 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 intend to do any major works on the Creekmouth property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Creekmouth property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The seller mentioned subsidence has been worth checking affecting the flat. What subsidence issues will the home survey examine?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. Newer homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. In some older houses cracks appear in the Summer , but these should close up in Winter when the materials absorb moisture.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the external brickwork, or cracks which were stable, but are showing signs of fresh movement, may indicate subsidence. Inside the house, keep an eye out for doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. 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. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Creekmouth, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the home surveyor look for flooding?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are at risk of floods, and the value of a Creekmouth home in an at-risk area may be impacted. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a residence through several routes, including loose patio doors. An awareness of characteristics of the Creekmouth area likely to affect the residence also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the River Thames including areas in the boroughs of Havering, Barking and Dagenham, and Newham, near Creekmouth, to 'No warnings'.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I should look out for when intending to buy a converted flat in Creekmouth near a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Creekmouth must have knowledge of local area issues and any bearing they have with the building and its value. The price of property is, more often than not, significantly higher due to them being unspoilt. However many conservation areas have fallen into poor condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors can be expected to inform you whether the building might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are carried out by your solicitor. Unauthorised extensions to the property may also be advised but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.
