HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Cherry Burton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Cherry Burton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give a thorough analysis of the Cherry Burton property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems we need to be aware of when intending to buy a house in Cherry Burton in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Surveyors in Cherry Burton are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and any bearing may have on the property. Property Prices will likely be higher as a result of the areas resisting change. However many areas are falling into disrepair for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

RICS surveyors are expected report if the property is or might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted by your legal representation. Unconsented developments to the building may also be commented on but these are really

more a concern for your conveyancer. Davis Davidson are a local firm situated at Tower House, East Riding of Yorkshire, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU17 8AZ and may be happy to advise further. Tel: 01482 881278

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour said subsidence might be worth checking. What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be repaired. Heave is less common, and may result from the removal of a tree or shrub.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the bricks or render outside the property, or noticeable widening cracks which have remained stable for some time, may indicate subsidence. Inside, keep an eye out for sticking doors or windows.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a home with a converted attic in Cherry Burton. What will our property surveyor in Cherry Burton be concerned about during the survey work?

Homes in the area in good condition could feature roofing woes, like dry rot. From clay tiles to valley gutters, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. Your Cherry Burton surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A builder from the area can provide an estimate.
