HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Hither Green property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Hither Green property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Hither Green may be worth checking. What possible solutions are to available to fix this?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Many homes are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Subsidence is not always easy to identify, as most of the tell-tale signs could comfortably be caused by other factors. Inside, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further 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.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a building in Hither Green. What can we do?

Any questions about pests affecting a Hither Green home may not be asked by the lawyer. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. Remedies to pest problems can include traps and removal or excision of affected timber.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a house with Clipsham stone walls. Are there specific potential issues to bear in mind, and what does the survey cover?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like spalling brick will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
