HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Denton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Denton property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a renovated farmhouse in Denton. Will the age of the residence be an issue?

Older construction methods and materials can create difficulties for an owner. Buildings showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. .

Construction materials, such as suitable timber, may also need to be sourced. This can mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. Speak to your Denton surveyor for further advice. Built in the 14th century, Lodge Farm, The Farmhouse, Phase 1 in Denton is a fine example of a Medieval-period aisled open hall.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour has said subsidence might be a concern affecting the apartment. What subsidence issues will the Home Buyers Survey look into?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a structure and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement will often occur in newly constructed structures, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the bricks or render outside the property, or the widening of existing cracks, may indicate subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows which stick.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.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. 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. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.
