HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in East Dean and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the East Dean property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the East Dean property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor suggested subsidence may be a concern. What subsidence issues will the property survey reveal?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new house after some months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, damaging the structure, particularly in clay soil as water is removed from the soil by bushes and trees. Inside the property, keep an eye out for rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
