HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Walsingham and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Walsingham property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Walsingham property's condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw there are no cracks in the brickwork outside, but basement floor dips noticeably, is this subsidence? Is this a major risk, and what subsidence-related matters will the Chartered Surveyor review?

Movement of a structure on a structural level is called subsidence. The builder will likely return to a new structure after time has passed in order to make repairs.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that sitting flat. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer may become unstable and begin to slide downward. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise all

or part of a foundation. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil. Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Walsingham, and think we saw signs of vermin in the toilet. Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Any questions about pests affecting a Walsingham building may not be asked by the lawyer. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for an infestation may include removal of infected furniture.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Walsingham properties at risk, and does a property surveyor check for flooding damage?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams can cause floods, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before flood damage occurs.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a Walsingham property, such as via badly fitted air bricks.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Walsingham property enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The surveyor may ask the residents about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
