HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Worksop and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Worksop property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Worksop property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Window frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Worksop property, what will 'E5 - Windows' cover?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike some more complex survey reports. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific residence being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

In Worksop, an example may be stiff sash windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

Stone block wall damage

Will a home in Worksop with stone walls cause problems? Which major related issues should we consider?

There is a long list of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Carlton Forest Quarry, Blyth Road, Scofton, Worksop, Nottinghamshire, S80 0TP, quarrying Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 01909 730416 for more information.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor mentioned subsidence might be a problem. What subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report look into?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a house and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement will occur in recently built houses, and is rarely a cause for concern. The structure's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months.

Subsidence-related cracks are normally wider at the top. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also undermine the foundations. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
