HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Ettington and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Ettington property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the Ettington property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property in Ettington and the vendor has suggested that it has been built with Darley Dale stone. Which factors should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Red St.Bees Sandstone to Portland Roach Limestone. Defects such as displacement affect many stone-walled houses in Ettington. Stone quarried in the area is common to local houses in Ettington, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Purchasers renovating houses in Ettington should be aware that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. To source stone quarried in Ettington, you can contact local suppliers.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we need to verify when intending to buy a flat in Ettington in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Ettington are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local issues and any effect may have on the building and its value. House prices are generally more than prices outside the area because of the areas being preserved.

Surveyors are trained to inform you whether the location might be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted as part of the legal process. Unconsented extensions to the building may also be reported, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? Is this a urgent concern, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. Recently built homes, for example, will need to settle beneath the building's own weight. In some older homes cracks are noticeable in Summer , and in Winter these will close when the materials absorb water.

Soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that flat ground and can sometimes become unstable and start to slip downhill. Inside the house, keep an eye out for doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
