HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Eccles and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Eccles property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Eccles property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice why not get a Eccles House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder has said subsidence might be a problem affecting the property. What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the external brickwork, or the widening of existing cracks, may indicate subsidence. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, possibly as a result of lower-quality materials.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the home we expect to move into, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, does a Eccles survey advise electrical defects?

When conducting a Building Survey in Eccles the home surveyor should mention the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a poor condition. This will include a by sight examination of open or exposed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of concerns such as the state of residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician will form part of the survey in Eccles. A check for the evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Eccles .

The IEE recommend an electrical check need be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting out). To get Eccles help on electrical testing call Abbot & Weaver Electrical Services , 11a Hampson St/Off East Ordsall La, Salford, M5 4RL .

Stone block wall damage

Can properties partially constructed with stone create upkeep problems for residents? What should we be particularly aware of?

Ranging from Portland Cap Limestone to Rockingstone Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues including spalling brick affect many stone-walled buildings in Eccles. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as.
