HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Plasmarl and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Plasmarl property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Plasmarl property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence information does the Plasmarl Building Survey include?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture builds up in the soil, causing the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the bricks or render outside the property may indicate subsidence. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. 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. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour mentioned that the had been issues with pooling water on the roof. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What advice would the building surveyor in Plasmarl give in their report?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Plasmarl. Many residential properties can still be subject to roof maintenance problems, such as sagging beams. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the purlins to the tie beams. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by badly installed felting.

The expense of wholesale replacement, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Plasmarl. Is there any Scottish bond guidelines for upkeep we should be aware of?? Is age a factor?

Brick-constructed residential property in Plasmarl demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be subject to both minor and serious issues. These can include moisture damage or sulphate expansion. For instance, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and should be taken very seriously. For more information, contact a local builder, Brickwork C G of Laburnum Ter, Abercarn, Newport, NP11 5JQ on 01495 249892.

E.g. shiner bond or header bond may be used in the construction of residential property in Plasmarl. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
