HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Worsley and which is the cheapest?

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

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

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Worsley property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent has mentioned subsidence could be a problem affecting the house. Is this a urgent risk, and what can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the HomeBuyer Report?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures experience some minor cracking, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations. Additionally, most homes in Worsley are erected with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that flat ground and can sometimes become unstable and begin to slide downward. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. 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. Maple, lime and horse chestnut trees should planted no closer than 20m to the property itself. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. As an alternative to underpinning, piling, or mini-piling, uses concrete or steel poles that are driven down into more stable soil, to stop further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

Chimney stacks

In the HomeBuyer Report, what effect can a green light rating have on chimney stacks?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the impact on the property individual defects may have. Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out.

They are visually reviewed from ground level if access to the roof cannot be arranged. Creosote build-up in the chimney flue is an example of this.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Worsley and are looking for a house with handmade bricks. What recommendations will the surveyor make?

Brick-constructed buildings in Worsley feature several advantages, but they can also be affected by numerous defects, such as efflorescence. For example, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and may require immediate attention. For more information, contact a local builder, C S Brickwork of 64 Graham Rd, Kirk Sandall, Doncaster, DN3 1JZ on 07940 009607.

Brick-constructed property have been used for centuries, leading to a range of styles and techniques. As an example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
