HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Hoole and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hoole property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the Hoole property's state of repair along with advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons to get a full structural survey in Hoole as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report when considering a extended cottage?

Although they are often still referred to as Full Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike, they are now actually called Building Surveys. This is now the most appropriate home survey when buying an unusual home e.g. a property in poor condition house. This non prescribed format of report sets out full and often serious insight about the property's construction materials on top of any defects a thorough visual inspection.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw that windows in the kitchen did not line up when we last viewed the flat. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related defects will my Home Buyers Survey look into?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In the majority of cases, subsidence can be resolved without a great deal of stress. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture accumulates below ground level. This may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, undermining foundations. This particularly in clay-rich soil, as water is drawn out of the soil by plant life. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature 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.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Conservation area

Are there any things I would need to look out for when purchasing a house in Hoole in conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have local knowledge of relevant local factors and the effect may have with the property and its value. Property values will likely be enhanced due to them being unspoilt.

Surveyors will inform you if the planned purchase is/might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised by your solicitor. Unconsented modifications to the building may also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.
