HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Haydock and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Haydock property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Haydock property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of that there is a 17mm crack above the windows in the sitting room, is this subsidence? What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes may suffer some degree of superficial cracks. A builder should return to a new home after time has passed to make good any settlement cracks.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, damaging the structure, particularly in clay-rich soil, as water is removed from the soil by plants. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a house and the estate agent has stated that it has been built with Wooton stone. Are there any major issues that we should be aware of?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Defects affecting stone-built buildings can vary, staining being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.
