HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Rossett and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Rossett property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Rossett property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a property in Rossett and saw cracks across the render on the outside walls. What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be fixed. Heave is less common, and may result from the removal of a tree or shrub and its roots cease absorbing moisture from the ground.

Cracks to a garage plaster are a clear indication of subsidence, but they may be harmless. In some cases, the presence of organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise the structure. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Using large concrete pins, placed beneath current foundations and extending deep into the ground, underpinning is expensive, totalling £1000s, but it can be very effective. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The handmade bricks on this Edwardian property might need repairs. What are the possible consequences? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

For instance, damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork and should be taken very seriously. Newman Geriant may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep.
