HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Nether Edge and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Nether Edge property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Nether Edge property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor has said subsidence has been a concern. What subsidence issues does the Nether Edge Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be corrected. Additionally, most homes in Nether Edge are erected with a variety of materials. These will contract at different rates.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Nether Edge. 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 could then become unsteady and begin to slide downward. 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 begin to rot and become unstable. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, 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. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. 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 Nether Edge surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us. What does the surveyor in Nether Edge check when the home is surveyed?

Nether Edge residences with no other major issues may be exposed to roofing woes, like ponding. From slates to valley gutters, all aspects of the roof will be considered. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as laying tar paper or felt) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to get a full structural survey when investing in a shabby fifties cottage in Nether Edge over a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly referred to as the Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been renamed by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. You should have the Building Survey for the property described. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a post 1950s unmodified Nether Edge home made out of normal building materials. There are a number limitations exist with any survey - the surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the building for example, or inspect under floor (unless accessible).
