HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Crews Hill and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Crews Hill property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Crews Hill property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would need to on guard for when intending to buy a converted flat in Crews Hill near a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Crews Hill must have relevant knowledge of local issues and the connection may have on the home. House prices will be inflated due to conservation areas retaining original features. However a large number have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Property surveyors can be expected to report if the house is/might be is so classified and Section I of the Crews Hill Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may be reported, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Crews Hill. Is there any Flemish bond maintenance advice we should be aware of??

Brick-walled properties in Crews Hill can be subject to both minor and serious issues, from moisture damage to spalling. For instance, rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Hunt P R at 150 Hall Av, Rushden, NN10 9EU on 01933 410226.

Buyers in Crews Hill should consider that a broad range of techniques have been used for centuries. E.g. Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A home we intend to buy is built on clay soil. What should we expect a Building Survey to include? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a property. Signs like sticking doors can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
