HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ranmoor and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Ranmoor property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Ranmoor property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I should on guard for if purchasing an extended house in Ranmoor inside a conservation area?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Surveyors in Ranmoor are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local considerations and the relation they have with the home. House prices will likely be higher because of them being preserved. However many have been neglected and are in a state of neglect e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Property surveyors are trained to report if the planned purchase is possibly is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unauthorised modifications to the property should be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of that windows in the lounge did not line up when we last viewed the home. What subsidence issues will the property survey review?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. In the majority of cases, subsidence can be remedied more easily than you might expect. 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.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. Collapsed mains drainage pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This may be referred to as groundwater subsidence. In extreme temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Traditionally built property

What should we bear in mind when buying older property in Ranmoor? Will the age of the home be an issue?

Some buyers hope to own a house with personality, like a Georgian terrace. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Ranmoor structures built with traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging. Contact your RICS surveyor for further advice.
