HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Robertsbridge and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Robertsbridge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Robertsbridge property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a property in Robertsbridge and saw evidence of the driveway surface is broken and uneven, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence information does the Robertsbridge property survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle under their own weight. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new home after six months in order to repair settlement damage.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. One such issue is that soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that sitting flat. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer can sometimes become unstable and start to slip downhill. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. 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.
