HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Wigton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Wigton has been an issue. What options are to available to fix this?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be set right without a great deal of stress.

A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. 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 start to slip downhill. Inside, keep an eye out for sticking doors or windows.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Wigton Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings)

Homebuyer Reports include a professional valuation and a reinstatement cost as standard. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will refer to knowledge of Wigton and other factors relating to the property for instance: square metres The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and use other assumptions such as no contamination in or from ground.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there aren't any major legal issues such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Further area conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or the property being insurable, are made in addition to environmental problems like nearby pubs, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
