HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Swadlincote and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Swadlincote property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a flat in Swadlincote and saw a gap below the skirting board in the kitchen. What can be done to resolve subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes may suffer some degree of superficial cracks, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations. In some older homes cracks become apparent when temperatures rise , but these should close up in Winter when the materials contract and draw in water.

Subsidence can be difficult to diagnose, as most of the tell-tale signs could comfortably be caused by other factors. Inside, keep an eye out for doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. 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. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What directions can a Swadlincote surveyor offer for properties with Flemish bond walls?

Swadlincote converted property with brick walls can be subject to a number of issues, such as vertical cracking. A defect requiring immediate attention is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Button & Ball Building Contractors Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 4 Glebe View, Coalville, LE67 3NJ or 01530 814004.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

House Prices

I am going to purchase a detached property in DE12. It is on the market for £154, 116. What will a Swadlincote RICS surveyor consider when carrying out a Home Survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect house prices from state (of neglect) of exterior to general regional pricing. One method is to analyse prices recorded in Swadlincote for comparable properties.

The average house price registered between July and October in 2012 was £143, 416 - £10, 700 less than £154, 116. The house/flat average was £141, 708. 12, Keepers Close, Moira, Swadlincote, North West Leicestershire, Leicestershire, DE12 6DB a detached property sold for £66, 950 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get an independent home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. A local surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).
