HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Wells Next The Sea and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Wells Next The Sea property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Wells Next The Sea property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted that there is a 10mm crack above the windows in the garage when we last viewed the flat. What subsidence information does the Wells Next The Sea house survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a structure, but some degree of movement will always occur. Newer homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the property.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Wells Next The Sea. One such issue is that soil on ground which slopes downward is not as stable as that sitting flat. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and begin to slide downward. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise the structure. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. 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. Willow trees, for example, are often the culprits of serious subsidence. Buyers are often surprised to learn that a willow tree should be planted no neared than 40m from a home. Structural brickwork may

need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Wells Next The Sea surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Wells Next The Sea Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how does the surveyor work it out?

Wells Next The Sea Homebuyer Reports a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. To be able to determine the correct valuation the surveyor will combine awareness of the Wells Next The Sea property market and other considerations about the property e.g. size The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and use key assumptions like no contamination in or from ground.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there is an absence of any serious legal problems such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative.

Additional local area assumptions like services, are made in addition to environmental concerns like nearby pubs, which will also be factored in.

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Wells Next The Sea, should we be worried about a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey consider signs of flooding, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and the value of a property in an at-risk area may be impacted. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a residential property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The property survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
