HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hamworthy 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 Hamworthy property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Hamworthy property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Hamworthy, what input does a Hamworthy surveyor give for a home with Diagonal bond walls? Does render make a difference?

Brick conversions in Hamworthy will experience a range of defects. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Age Contracts may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 020 8428 1835 or 11 Fernleigh Ct, Harrow, HA2 6NA.

For instance, stretcher bond or Scottish bond are both used in Hamworthy conversions. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

House Prices

Is £216, 890 a good amount to be buying a house in BH16 in Hamworthy for and what will the surveyor consider when conducting a valuation ?

There is a vast array of things which could have a bearing on house prices such as existence of building regulations for modifications or the local crime statistics. It may help to put side by side prices achieved in Hamworthy at the same time for similar houses.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £187, 990, which is £28, 900 less than the price you are intending to pay (£183, 639 was the blended house/flat average). Carly Court, 30, Flat 5, Poole Road, Upton, Poole, Purbeck, Dorset, BH16 5JB a detached property was purchased for £142, 000 .

An impartial way to get a professional house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1979-built flat in Hamworthy and noticed that windows in the garage did not line up. What solutions are to available to resolve this?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes will experience cracking at some stage, particularly new-build properties or those with a recent extension In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new home after some months in order to repair settlement damage.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. For example, water leaking from a broken pipes 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. 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. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Willow trees, for example, are often the culprits of serious subsidence. Buyers are often surprised to learn that a willow tree should be planted no neared than 40m from a home. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
