  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Kenton

    A RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Kenton) will also be conducted by a MRICS or FRICS surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this for unconventional e.g. cellared homes.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Kenton and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Kenton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations on the Kenton property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kenton property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect should rain have on our new property in Kenton, and does our HomeBuyer Report mention it? Could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is usually overlooked by property buyers. One indication that gutters are a cause for concern is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage.

Fortunately, drainage problems are usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are untreated or poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Kenton, and will the home buyers survey investigate indications of flood damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Flooding in Kenton can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and property purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The seller has mentioned subsidence could be an issue impacting the house. What subsidence issues does the Chartered Surveyor report on?

Movement of a building on a structural level is called subsidence.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp.

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. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
