HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Dinnington and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Dinnington property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you comprehensive details of the Dinnington property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Dinnington - Will access to the attic be a problem?

Local property in otherwise fine condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems. From ridge flashing to eaves, the whole roof should be investigated. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like badly installed felting.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Dinnington, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Call Hagues Roofing & Building of 185 Upper Allen Street, Sheffield, S3 7GT on 01709 361860 for a quote.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a flat in Dinnington and spotted there are no cracks in the brickwork outside, but lounge floor dips noticeably, could this be evidence of subsidence? What are the risks, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under the home's own weight. Additionally, most homes in Dinnington are erected with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Merely superficial cracks not caused by subsidence could be painted over. Signs of potential subsidence include rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a barn conversion in Dinnington. Will the age of the building be a concern?

For traditionally-built Dinnington property, age can concern buyers. Dinnington property constructed with traditional methods can be a chore to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. If the residence you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the surveyor for more detail.
