HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Rusholme and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Rusholme property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Rusholme property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a flat near to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. domestic refuse disposal. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns might include hazardous chemicals .

Surveyors will find structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Manchester Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Rusholme Building Survey to mention this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Rusholme property will have an impact. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Rusholme property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. A Rusholme surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1810s residential property with stone walls. Are there any major matters that we should be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

Ranging from Lees Endcliffe Sandstone to Dukes Gritstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like erosion will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as repointing of loose or crumbling mortar. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.
