HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Ryde and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ryde property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Ryde property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of pests in the kitchen - What should we do?

Homes are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Treatment for vermin may include use of poison. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick walls on this Victorian house looks in bad shape. What are the possible consequences?

Brick Ryde property will show signs of diverse problems. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report and suggest potential remedies. A serious concern is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Best Brickwork at 23 Cross St, Liversedge, WF15 7AB on 01924 406406.

A range of styles and techniques of brick building can be found across Ryde. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Ryde subsidence has been a concern. What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, undermining foundations. This particularly in clay-rich soil, as moisture is taken up from the ground by shrubs and trees. Signs of potential subsidence include new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
