HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cudworth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Cudworth property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Cudworth property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Cudworth Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to consider rainwater goods?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which wet weather has on homes in Cudworth is not given enough thought by house purchasers. Signs that rainwater goods are worth a closer look include "gushing" gutters, and may lead to hazardous mould. Whether buying in Cudworth or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if caught early. If not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of cracks along the cellar ceiling, is this subsidence? How could this affect the property, and what subsidence issues will the HomeBuyer Report look into?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement will occur in newly constructed homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new home after six months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Many homes develop superficial cracks in a ceiling plaster, due to settlement, changes in temperature and humidity. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. 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.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a property with a converted attic in Cudworth , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does a RICS surveyor investigate during the survey?

Property in and around Cudworth in otherwise fine condition could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes, like sagging beams. Any part of the roof or loft, such as ceiling joists, ought to be checked. Factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A local roofing specialist with positive reviews can provide a quote. Speak to Shales Bros Ltd of 11 Queens Drive, Cudworth, Barnsley, S72 8AH on 0800-138 8796 for an estimate.
