HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Crosby and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Crosby property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Crosby property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Crosby property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property in Crosby but are worried about bugs. Do we need a house surveyor?

Crosby purchasers should know that is not a requirement that the vendor to mention a pest issue. This matter should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include chemical treatment. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor suggested subsidence could be an issue. What can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle under the home's own weight.

Subsidence-related cracks are commonly wider at the top. Signs of potential subsidence include new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.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. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Oak and elm trees must be located well away from the property, at least 30m. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A home we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will your Property Survey look into this?

Clay soil can create a range of issues for home owners, with subsidence being a common example. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Signs like a difficult-to-open lounge window or small cracks in the lounge ceiling can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Steps like avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
