HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Ironbridge and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Ironbridge property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Ironbridge property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Ironbridge. What does a home surveyor look for?

This often causes anxiety for property purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Homes throughout Ironbridge can be hiding serious damage to the roof. From purlins to tie beams, many parts of the roof and loft will be taken into account, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Re-flashing and re-tiling, among other aspects of roof repair, need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing contractor can provide an estimate.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish Stretcher bond upkeep guidance - can a surveyor in Ironbridge assist?

Brick-constructed buildings do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also be subject to diverse problems. 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 several local builders for quotes, including Brain Andrew H of 65 Shepherds Leaze, Wotton-Under-Edge, GL12 7LJ on 01453 521361.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A builder has suggested subsidence is a concern. What possible solutions are to available to fix this?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a structure and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement does happen in new structures, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, this should quickly settle. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs where the ground level moves upwards.

In areas where clay soil is common, drought can cause the water table to drop. This can dry out, shrinking the clay, straining the foundations of the home and which causes subsidence. In severe weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. 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. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
