HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Parsons Green and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Parsons Green property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Parsons Green property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will a Parsons Green surveyor make for a house with brick chimney?

Parsons Green residences with brick walls can suffer from distinct issues. These can include inadequate damp-proofing or sulphate attack. For instance, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Barford R A, The Haven/Bakers Green/Little Totham Rd, Little Totham, Maldon, CM9 8LT on 01621 788464 for a quote for repair work.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create problems? I am buying a home in Parsons Green. Can we expect the Home Survey to mention this, and what defects will be reported on?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Parsons Green house will have an impact. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Signs like warped window frames in the garage can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Parsons Green, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Patches of very dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Defective door frame

For the Parsons Green HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

One example issue could be blocked drainage holes. Outside doors are to be opened and closed where keys are available, but not forced open. In general, where doors have obviously been replaced, relevant issues are considered. This can include overall quality, whether the frame provides adequate support, and building regulations have been met (e.g. FENSA and Certass).

Severe defects impacting the Parsons Green property are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Parsons Green property. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.
