HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Tyldesley and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Tyldesley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations on the Tyldesley property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Tyldesley property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Tyldesley builder said subsidence has been worth checking impacting the house. What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Movement of a building on a structural level is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise all or part of a foundation. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.This need not be expensive.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning involves holes being dug 1 metre long and around 1.5 metres deep, along all affected sections of wall, and just beneath the present foundations. Reinforcement bars and concrete are then inserted into these pits to support the structure, as the rest of the foundations are dug out and similarly filled in with concrete. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Flemish Diagonal bond repair tips for the Georgian house we are buying? Does brick decay faster in Tyldesley weather?

Brick flats be affected by numerous defects, such as efflorescence. For example, frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely and may require immediate attention. Carrick Construction should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01788 551836 or 56 Fleet Cr, Rugby, CV21 4BG.

A range of courses arrangements and colours of brick building have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. For example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
