HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Easton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Easton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Easton property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Easton. What suggestions can a Easton surveyor make? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed properties feature several advantages. However, they can also be subject to various issues and defects, including lack of a damp proof course and cracks. For instance, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and should be taken very seriously. For more information, contact a local builder, Baxendale Ian of 20 Ripon Clo, Chadderton, Oldham, OL9 8QN on 0161-633 6371.

Buyers in Easton should consider that a number of approaches and materials feature in construction throughout Easton. For example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Does a Easton House Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Whether a property was built in 17011 or 20011, factors as varied as insect infestation or dry rot can create problems for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a number of issues. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. For example, warping of floorboards may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Easton, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. Isolated patches of wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can heavy rain have on our new building in Easton? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that this issue is usually overlooked by property buyers. One indication that drainage systems are at risk is spalling on walls around drainage. Poor drainage can lead to penetrating damp.

Fortunately, problems with drains are quite easy to fix.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
