HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Rothwell and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Rothwell property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Rothwell property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

For the Rothwell HomeBuyer Report what are the usual Condition Rating 1 defects affecting 'E9 - Other' ?

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. Fastener problems with a conservatory roof is an example of a Section E defect. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition, but regular upkeep may still be required. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a conversion with Darley Dale stone walls. Are there specific matters to bear in mind?

There are many of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Problems which impact stone-built Rothwell property can vary greatly, with issues like deteriorating mortar being quote common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Rothwell are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Methley Quarry, Green Lane, Methley, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS26 9AW, quarrying Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 01977 512371 for more information.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder said subsidence might be a concern impacting the property. What subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be resolved. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water builds up in the soil, which may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Cracks to a hall are a plain indication of subsidence. Fortunately, these are in many cases benign. Signs of potential subsidence include sticking doors or windows.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
