Which Home Buyers Survey should you choose?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Ware and which is cheaper?

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

If the Ware property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Ware property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Ware property's state of repair in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1977-built flat in Ware and found that there is a 18mm gap between the dining room wall and the door frame. What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the home survey?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Less common than subsidence, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Ware. One such issue is that soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that flat ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer can sometimes become unstable and slip down the incline. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries, this organic matter will rot. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. 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, with no underpinning required. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we need to be wary of when planning to buy a flat in Ware in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Ware need to possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the effect may have with the home. Prices tends to be significantly higher owing to them being in their original state.

Surveyors will advise you whether the property is possibly so designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by your legal representation. Out of keeping developments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be reported in the Ware survey, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer. Barnes and Partners are based in High Oak House, East Hertfordshire, Hertfordshire, SG12 7LY might be prepared to give you some pointers. Tel: 01920 460823
