HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Waterhouses property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Waterhouses property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am planning to buy a property in Waterhouses (ST10). The asking price is £228, 600. What factors will Waterhouses surveyor allow for during a valuation ?

Any number of issues that might affect property values ranging from location of nearby transport links to the modernity of the kitchen. It is useful to put side by side values recorded in the same area for similar properties.

The average house price completed between July and October in 2012 was £220, 300, which is £8, 300 less than the asking price. Weaverlow, Rue Hill, Cauldon Low, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire Moorlands, Staffordshire, ST10 3EY a detached house sold for £270, 000 .

The most cost effective way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part.

A professional surveyor should go to the site in addition to allowing for the long list of influences that might affect the value of property.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Waterhouses. What warnings would the surveyor give?

Brick-constructed apartments in Waterhouses demonstrate several benefits, but they can also experience distinct issues. For example, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and may require immediate attention. Contact several local builders for quotes, including A G of 41 Erriff Dr, South Ockendon, RM15 5AW on 01708 852020.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface).

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Waterhouses subsidence is an issue. What can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes may suffer some degree of superficial cracks, particularly new-build properties or those with a recent extension Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new home after six months to make good any settlement cracks.

A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. For example, water leaking from a broken pipes will clear away soil supporting the building structure. This can effectively reduce the volume of the soil surrounding the structure, meaning it can no longer support the weight of the building. Signs of potential subsidence include new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
