HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Dalton in Furness and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Dalton in Furness property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Dalton in Furness property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw that the sitting room floor dipped in one corner when we last viewed the apartment. What subsidence information does the Dalton in Furness house survey include?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. In some older structures cracks are revealed in warmer weather which, as it gets colder, will close up when the materials absorb water.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the brickwork or walls on the outside, or the widening of existing cracks, may indicate subsidence. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which begins to rot, can also destabilise parts of the property's foundations. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse. Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has

been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. 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. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Dalton in Furness. What will we need to investigate when purchasing a building constructed in 1740? What effect will the rafter roof have on upkeep?

Many buyers in Dalton in Furness hope to own a home with character. A property's age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Property constructed with traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, .

Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, may be required. This may mean long-term upkeep. Discuss this with the RICS surveyor for more detail.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Dalton in Furness? Where there is damage, what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that this issue is not given enough thought by home buyers. One indication that gutters are blocked is "gushing" gutters. This could then result in rising damp.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair fairly cheaply. If not unblocked on a regular basis, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
