HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Newburn and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Newburn property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Newburn property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Newburn builder has said subsidence has been a concern. What can be done to resolve subsidence if subsidence is found during the house survey?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle beneath the structure's own weight.

Cracks are a clear sign of subsidence. These could, fortunately, be merely superficial. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, possibly as a result of lower-quality materials.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Using large concrete pins, placed beneath current foundations and extending deep into the ground, underpinning is expensive, totalling £1000s, but it can be very effective. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get English Garden Wall bond advice for the property in Newburn we are purchasing? Is age a factor?

Brick-constructed houses in Newburn do benefit from many advantages over structures built with irregular stone, but they can also show signs of a range of defects. This could be anything from horizontal cracking to erosion. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. A problem regularly identified is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Brickwork C G at Laburnum Ter, Abercarn, Newport, NP11 5JQ on 01495 249892.

Brick-constructed property have been used for centuries, leading to a good selection of methods and styles. For instance, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Newburn include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees) and what will it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as standard. To be able to determine the market value your RICS valuer will pair knowledge of Newburn and other considerations about the property for instance: accommodation The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will use key assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues such as your potential purchase is sold with vacant possession. Advice should be sought from your conveyancer.

Further Newburn assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Newburn environmental problems like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
