HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Whitnash and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

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

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Whitnash property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get an instant Whitnash Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The stretcher bond walls on this Georgian property needs work - what should we do?

Brick-built structures do benefit from many advantages, but they will also experience both minor and serious issues. For instance, sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat and should be taken very seriously. Contact Pelham Builders for a repairs estimate at 0151-630 3807 or 4 Pelham Rd, Wallasey, CH44 3AD.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Whitnash , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does a surveyor in Whitnash look into during the survey?

Whitnash property in good condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer issues with the roof. From tie beams to fascias, the whole roof must be reviewed. Factors like amateur repairs are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like insulating the attic, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will a Whitnash Building Survey look into this?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay, with soil compaction or compression and swelling of the soil being relatively common. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
