HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Pulborough and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Pulborough property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Pulborough property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Pulborough - What does the Pulborough surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Pulborough homes with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes, like bad drainage. Any part of the roof or loft, such as roof battens, ought to be checked. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Speak to Eagle Roofing Ltd of 4 Whylands Avenue, Worthing, BN13 3HG on 01903 267620 for an estimate.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Pulborough, what input does a surveyor in Pulborough give for a residence built from brick walls?

Brick-built Pulborough structures demonstrate several benefits over stone-built property. Unfortunately, they also show signs of diverse problems, such as DPC failure. An issue of particular concern is 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. For more information, contact a local builder, Wilkinson Derek of 3 Alexandra Terr, Tiverton, EX16 5JS on 01884 243438.

Pulborough home purchasers may need to consider that broad range of techniques can be found across the UK. For example, running, or stretcher, bond. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Pulborough is an issue. What subsidence issues does the Property Surveyor report on?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. Often, homes in Pulborough are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the brickwork or walls on the outside, or noticeable widening cracks which have remained stable for some time, may indicate subsidence. In serious conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. 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. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.
