HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Haggerston and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Haggerston property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Haggerston property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Haggerston Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Haggerston could be a concern. What subsidence information does the Haggerston Home Buyers Survey include?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. Often, homes are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

Superficial cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence

are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Haggerston, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the attic. What advice should we get?

Property purchasers in Haggerston should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. This issue should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to pest problems can include insecticides. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Haggerston and are looking for houses constructed with brick. What warnings would you give? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick structures in Haggerston will be affected by various issues and defects. These issues will be mentioned in the report along with recommendations.

A defect often found is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Brijon Construction of 21 Hampton Chase, Prenton, CH43 9HE on 0151-651 1689.

E.g. Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond.
