HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Moor Park and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Moor Park property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Moor Park property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 15th Century property in Moor Park. What impact will the house's rafter roof have on repairs?

Some buyers in Moor Park hope to own a house with personality, like a Victorian home. For houses in Moor Park built before the 20th Century, age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Properties featuring traditional methods can be costly to repair. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials. Mention this to your surveyor for more information.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found the driveway surface is broken and uneven, is this subsidence? How could this affect the property, and what subsidence issues will the HomeBuyer Report consider?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a building which compromises its structural integrity. Most buildings experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. New buildings in Moor Park and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. In some older buildings cracks become apparent when temperatures rise that close up in the Winter when the materials absorb moisture. These cracks are usually completely harmless.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the external brickwork, or the widening of existing cracks, may indicate subsidence. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Sussex bond advice for the converted apartment we are buying? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-constructed residential property in Moor Park do benefit from many advantages in comparison to other forms of building, but they can also show signs of several common problems. For instance, 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 and should be taken very seriously. Contact Mac M Ltd for a repairs estimate at 020 8504 3885 or 22 Grange Avenue, Woodford Green, IG8 9JT.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
