HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Colsterworth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Colsterworth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Colsterworth property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a property in Colsterworth and found that the kitchen floor was uneven. What possible solutions are to available to remedy this?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. Less common than subsidence, but which can be as damaging to a home, heave describes the movement of earth upwards. Subsidence-related cracks are normally wider at the top than at the bottom. Signs of potential subsidence include sticking doors or windows.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish Diagonal bond guidelines for upkeep, can the surveyor help?

Brick-built properties feature several advantages, but they will also be subject to various issues and defects. For instance, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and should be taken very seriously. Bona-Fide Brickwork should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01895 674310 or 296 Victoria Rd, Ruislip, HA4 0DP.

Colsterworth home purchasers may need to consider that a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture have been used for centuries, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Gas flame

Does the Colsterworth surveyor look into the condition of the gas appliances?

Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the meter location/position for instance, as well as gas associated appliances for example - fixed external ventilation hearths. Your Colsterworth qualified RICS surveyor will not remove gas fittings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests on the system or appliances. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
