Which Home Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Cheadle and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Cheadle property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Cheadle property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older dovecot in Cheadle. Will the age of the house be a problem?

Some buyers would like to own a old, characterful home one day. Vernacular architecture, however, can worry purchasers, and Cheadle homes built with traditional methods can be a chore to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. If you are uncertain, speak to the surveyor for more detail.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Cheadle home built in the late 50s, but it has clay foundations. Can we expect the HomeBuyer Report to mention this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a home's foundations can create difficulties. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Cheadle home's foundations, forcing them inward.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1880s residential property with stone walls. What should we be particularly aware of?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include weathered stone. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Cheadle properties, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Wienerberger Ltd, Wienerberger House, Brooks Drive, Cheadle Royal Business Park, Cheadle, Cheshire, SK8 3SA, quarrying Clay & Shale, for details. Call 01614 918200 for more information.
