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 .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building said that the had been a problem with lost tile pegs, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we check when the house is surveyed?

This is frequently addressed by Tadworth surveyors. Houses across Tadworth can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from parapet walls to dormer windows. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Tadworth, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the Tadworth surveyors will look for a range of signs, including being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Call Kestrel of 10 Tadworth St, Tadworth, KT20 5RN on 01737 357041 for more information.

English Heritage

I am planning to buy a flat near The Mound , will this affect the property's value?

The Mound is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest often enhance the attractiveness of an area. Other monuments of importance are Walton Place.. A RICS valuer will include all local and regional criteria during the homebuyer report in Tadworth. Refer to the English Heritage site for further details on The Mound.

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.
