HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Dunchurch and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Dunchurch property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension on the Dunchurch property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Dunchurch property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? Is this a urgent concern, and what subsidence-related defects will my Building Survey review?

Movement of the foundations of a building is called subsidence. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs when the ground is forced up rather than down.

Superficial cracks not caused by subsidence can be filled 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 decompose. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. 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.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw a property we are planning to buy we noticed that there is an unsafe electrical system - will a Homebuyer Report in Dunchurch go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Dunchurch your surveyor will usually add detail on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a poor state.

This will include a general view of the superficial sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to areas like verifying the condition of any fixed appliances, for example storage heaters or whether there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will form part of the survey in Dunchurch.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour warned us that access to the roofing could be an issue. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we investigate as part of the survey?

Properties in Dunchurch in good condition could feature roof maintenance problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to clay tiles, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as asbestos cement removal) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a local contractor can provide one. Speak to Rugby Roofing of 12 Finmere, Rugby, CV21 1RT on 07967 165548 to request a quote.
