HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Tadworth and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Tadworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the Tadworth property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Tadworth property's general condition in addition to information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Can we expect the Tadworth HomeBuyer Report to mention this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a property's foundations can create difficulties. Specific issues include soil swelling. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. For example, small cracks in the kitchen wall may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. A Tadworth surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted that there is a 14mm crack above the windows in the bathroom when we last viewed the apartment. How could this affect the property, and what solutions are to available to remedy this?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a house and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement usually occurs in newly constructed houses, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high gravel content, as this soil is more easily washed away by flooding. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

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. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Oak and elm trees must be located well away from the property, at least 30m. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

Conservation area

Are there any things I would need to consider if purchasing a period property in Tadworth near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local council.

A Building Surveyors must possess relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection may have on the home and its value. Property Prices are usually enhanced owing to the areas retaining original features.

Surveyors are expected tell you if the property looks like it may be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Tadworth Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented developments to the building will also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your legal adviser. Rowe Radcliffe are a local firm situated at 139 Brighton Road, Reigate and Banstead, Surrey, CR5 2NJ might be able to help. Tel: 020 8668 0419
