HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Lansbury and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Lansbury property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Lansbury property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Diagonal bond walls on this Victorian house is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences?

Brick Lansbury apartments will suffer from several common problems, such as horizontal cracking. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Whitely Mark Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01305 250080 or Higher Muckleford/1, Muckleford, Dorchester, DT2 9SW.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Lansbury? Will the Lansbury chartered surveyor report on this? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which wet conditions has on homes is overlooked by buyers. Signs that downspouts are blocked include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. Whether buying in Lansbury or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Lansbury subsidence might be a concern. What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs where the ground level moves upwards.

Subsidence can be difficult to diagnose because the issues which a Lansbury surveyor will seek to find could easily be caused by other factors. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Peat is normally stable when sat below the water table, but if the water level falls and the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. 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. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
