HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Driffield and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Driffield property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Driffield property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

We are shortly to be buying a detached house in Driffield (YO25). It is on the market for £155, 784. What will the RICS surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Driffield ?

There is a vast array of things which could have a bearing on property values such as the likelihood of getting planning permission to extend or the number of bathrooms. It can help to set against house prices achieved in the area for similar properties.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £157, 584 - £1, 800 more than £155, 784. The combined house/flat average was £154, 002. Ashlea, Foxholes, Driffield, Ryedale, North Yorkshire, YO25 3QF a detached home sold for £120, 000 .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits in upgrading to the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys don't actually exist now as the Building Survey has now superseded it. If buying an altered Driffield house - such as a tatty house, the Building Survey is the best property survey. It will provide in depth and often crucial details concerning the homes state of repair as well as any important technical details a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. Permanent outside buildings will also be inspected.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence-related matters will the Driffield Surveyor examine?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new home after six months in order to make repairs.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a greater-than-average concentration of sand, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. 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.
