HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Hoddesdon and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Hoddesdon property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications on the Hoddesdon property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Hoddesdon property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a home in Hoddesdon and saw that the kitchen floor was uneven. How could this affect the property, and what can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the home survey?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be repaired. Many homes are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Superficial cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler and repainted. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Buyers should

also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.
