HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Newton Le Willows and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Newton Le Willows property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications on the Newton Le Willows property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Newton Le Willows property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted cracks across the render on the outside walls when we last viewed the house. What subsidence information does the Newton Le Willows Home Buyers Survey include?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Heave is less common, and is caused by the death or removal of a large shrub or tree and the plant stops drawing moisture from the earth.

There are a number of factors capable of causing subsidence to Newton Le Willows homes. For example, water leaking from a collapsed drainage will wash soil away from the foundations. This can effectively reduce the volume of the soil surrounding the structure, meaning it can no longer support the weight of the building. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Newton Le Willows? Will the surveyor report on this?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rainfall can have on homes is not considered. If you have investigated the house you are buying in dry weather, issues may have been hidden, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to remedy.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Newton Le Willows , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our Newton Le Willows property surveyor check when the house is surveyed?

This is often asked by property purchasers who know that homes will suffer missing tiles, among a range of other roofing issues. From roof battens to dormer windows, the whole roof will be taken into account. The chartered surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Newton Le Willows builder can provide one.
