HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Cherry Willingham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Cherry Willingham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Cherry Willingham property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things I need to look out for when purchasing a property in Cherry Willingham inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by local councils. Cherry Willingham surveyors must possess relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and any bearing may have with the home and its value. Property Prices is, more often than not, enhanced because of the areas resisting change. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in disrepair for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors can be expected to report if the home might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Cherry Willingham Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are conducted by your conveyancer.

Unapproved adjustments to the property may also be noted but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor suggested subsidence is a problem. What subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be resolved on a reasonable budget.

Non-structural cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler and repainted. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will rot. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to investigate when buying an old building? Will the age of the property be a problem?

Older construction methods and materials can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Property constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find .

Construction materials, such as original bricks, . Discuss this with your property surveyor for more information.
