What HomeBuyers Survey is the correct choice for my potential home purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Eastcote and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Eastcote property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Eastcote property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect will rain have on a house in Eastcote? Can damaged downspouts decrease our property's value?

Regular rainfall is common in Eastcote and across the country, but the effect which heavy rainfall has on homes is rarely paid due attention. As an example, spalling on walls around drainage will likely suggest that the drainage are damaged.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve for a reasonable cost.However, the damage caused, where not cared for, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found that there is a 13mm crack above the windows in the dining room, is this subsidence? What subsidence issues will the house survey investigate?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be rectified on a reasonable budget. Less common than subsidence, but potentially as destructive, heave occurs where the ground level moves upwards.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a greater-than-average concentration of sand, as this soil is more easily washed away by flooding. Inside the house, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in plasterwork. Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This need not be expensive.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. 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

The house we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can my Eastcote Home Survey consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. In Eastcote's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. For example, separation of the skirting board from the floor may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Steps like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
