HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Framlingham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Framlingham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Framlingham property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Framlingham Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would a Framlingham property surveyor give for a home constructed with brick?

Brick-built structures demonstrate several benefits, but they will also indicate various issues and defects, ranging from horizontal cracking to lack of a damp proof course. For instance, sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall and should be taken very seriously. Contact Dean D for a repairs estimate at 01793 764051 or 23 The Dormers, Highworth, Swindon, SN6 7NY.

Buyers in Framlingham should consider that a great deal of variety can be found across the UK. For example, running, or stretcher, bond. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

House Prices

Is £294, 422 a reasonable price to be buying a detached house in IP13 for and what things does the surveyor consider on a property valuation report ?

There are a huge number of issues which could positively or negatively affect property values for example the existence of damp or the number and size of bedrooms at the home. You can try to set against values achieved in the area for similar properties.

This means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £279, 922, which is £14, 500 less than the price you are intending to pay. The combined house/flat average was £267, 556. Laxfield House Cottage, Dennington Road, Laxfield, Woodbridge, Mid Suffolk, Suffolk, IP13 8HJ a detached house sold for £400, 000 .

The most reliable way to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. A RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A local surveyor should visit the home as well as considering all other location related influences that have a bearing on house prices.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor mentioned subsidence has been a problem affecting the home. How could this affect the property, and what can be done to resolve subsidence if subsidence is found during the HomeBuyer Report?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement will occur in newly constructed homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The building's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, this should quickly settle. In some older homes cracks may be visible in the Summer months which will close up again as the weather cools when the materials absorb moisture.

In regions with a high concentration of clay soil, a dry spell will lower the water table. This will dry, contracting the soil around the property as it does so, putting a strain on the foundations and which causes subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
