HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Milford Haven and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Milford Haven property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Milford Haven property's general condition as well as advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need English Garden Wall bond repair tips, can a property surveyor in Milford Haven help?

Brick-built Milford Haven properties do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also be subject to several common problems. This could be anything from vertical cracking to crypto-florescence. A problem regularly identified is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Contact Skillbray Ltd for a repairs estimate at 020 8979 9674 or 32 Priory Gardens, Hampton, TW12 2PZ.

Buyers in Milford Haven should consider that a selection of different courses and brick making techniques feature in construction throughout Milford Haven. For example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks. Consider renegotiating the price of the Milford Haven 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

The agent suggested subsidence is a concern affecting the home. What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a structure, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under the home's own weight. Most homes are erected with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high sand, gravel or chalk content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks or flooding. In some cases, the presence of organic material, which begins to rot, can also undermine the foundations. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.This need not be expensive.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. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Milford Haven surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Milford Haven house and am concerned that the clay soil foundations have suffered some subsidence. What should we expect a Milford Haven Building Survey to include?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Milford Haven property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. There is a real benefit in booking a Milford Haven surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
