HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Woodhall Spa and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Woodhall Spa property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Woodhall Spa property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder has mentioned subsidence might be worth checking affecting the house. Is this a urgent concern, and what can be done to resolve subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. Many homes are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, undermine foundations to cause subsidence, particularly in clay-rich soil, as water is drawn out of the soil by plant life. Signs of potential subsidence include new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Using large concrete pins, placed beneath current foundations and extending deep into the ground, underpinning is expensive, totalling £1000s, but it can be very effective. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Woodhall Spa, what warnings would a Woodhall Spa property surveyor give for homes with Fletton brick? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built Woodhall Spa residences demonstrate several benefits over structures built with irregular stone. Unfortunately, they also experience a range of defects. This could be anything from sulphate expansion to erosion. For instance, rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Bona-Fide Brickwork of 296 Victoria Rd, Ruislip, HA4 0DP on 01895 674310.

A number of approaches and materials of brick building may be found throughout England and Wales. For instance, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

House Prices

There is a house in LN10 on for £270, 634. What things does the Woodhall Spa surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Woodhall Spa ?
