HomeBuyer Report

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Holly Village property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick wall upkeep suggestions, can the surveyor help? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built Holly Village flats do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also be subject to a range of defects.

A defect often found is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Contact W M Brickwork Ltd for a repairs estimate at 07730 700986 or 87 Argyle Rd, Sheffield, S8 9HJ.

For home purchasers in Holly Village seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall. Consider renegotiating the price of the Holly Village property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A builder mentioned subsidence has been worth checking. What subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report consider?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. Heave is less common, and is caused by the death or removal of a large shrub or tree.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that sitting flat. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer may become unstable and slip down the incline. In severe environmental conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Maple, lime and horse chestnut trees should planted no closer than 20m to the property itself. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a building in the region a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including domestic refuse disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health concerns like birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Holly Village will note structural problems connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Camden Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
