HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Knighton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Knighton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Knighton property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of if buying a building in the region Heyhope Tyre Tip on Heyhope and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. non-hazardous waste material disposal. There are 1, 000's of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people in England and Wales including Knighton. Worries might include chemicals like dioxins. Health issues like abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a house in Knighton and found that windows in the basement did not line up, could this be evidence of subsidence? What options are to available to fix this?

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 property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, this should quickly settle.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. In extreme weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. 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. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The stretcher bond walls on this Tudor house has deteriorated. What are the possible consequences? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-constructed apartments demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also suffer from considerable issues. These can include inadequate damp-proofing or sulphate attack. Your house surveyor would usually include these, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
