HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Grenoside and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Grenoside property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Grenoside property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence-related defects will my Home Buyers Survey look into?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be rectified without a great deal of stress. Often, homes are constructed from a range of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. For example, water leaking from a damaged drains will clear away soil supporting the building structure. By reducing the volume of the subsoil, the earth is more readily displaced by the weight of the property. Inside, keep an eye out for doors and windows which stick.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of 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. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a home proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. non-hazardous refuse disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns include complex organic chemicals. Health problems like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Grenoside surveyors will note any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to Sheffield Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect does wet weather have on a building? Where there is damage, what should we do?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet this issue is rarely paid due attention by home buyers. One indication that drainage systems are a cause for concern is "gushing" gutters. This could then result in hazardous mould.

Fortunately, guttering issues are generally easy to remedy, unless they are left untreated. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
