Need a Property Survey ? Which of the 3 should you select?

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice when buying a property built from standard materials i.e. brick & tile, not dilapidated and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Cranford) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS qualified surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this for unconventional e.g. stone homes.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cranford and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Cranford property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can your HomeBuyer Report investigate this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Factors from wet rot to insect infestation can cause difficulties for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. For example, minor wall cracks in the drawing room may be benign, or a clue prompting a

more thorough investigation. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Cranford. What recommendations will a Cranford surveyor make?

Brick-walled Cranford structures can indicate numerous defects, ranging from crumbling mortar to moisture damage.

For example, brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level and may require immediate attention. For more information, contact a local builder, All Brickwork of 11 Britten Gr, Old Farm Park, Milton Keynes, MK7 8PP on 01908 365853.

Cranford home purchasers may need to consider that a selection of different courses and brick making techniques may be found throughout England and Wales, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Cranford? And could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that the effect which rain has on a property is not given the attention it deserves. If you have only visited the new home in dry conditions, problems are unlikely to be visible.

Signs that drainage systems are under performing include mildew or damp in the roof. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to remedy.However, the damage caused, where disregarded, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
