HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Little Mill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Little Mill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Little Mill property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Monk bond maintenance tips - can a property surveyor in Little Mill assist?

Brick-built conversions feature several advantages, but they will also show signs of both minor and serious issues. One serious matter is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Buckley R at 5 Gibson La, Kippax, Leeds, LS25 7BA should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0113-286 8888.

For home purchasers in Little Mill seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks.

If the Little Mill surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

House Prices

We are hoping to be buying a house close to Little Mill (NP4) for around £168, 460. What considerations will a surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Little Mill ?

There are a huge number of issues that can add to or subtract from property values for instance the homes proximity to contaminated land or the local crime statistics. One method is to put side by side house prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

The average house price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £154, 260, which is £14, 200 less than the amount you are intending to pay. Myrtle Cottage, Penperlleni, Pontypool, Monmouthshire, Monmouthshire, NP4 0AH a detached property sold for £283, 500 .

The most reliable way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Little Mill subsidence could be a concern. What subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor review?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement does happen in recently built homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The building's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, this should quickly settle. Additionally, most homes in Little Mill are erected with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that flat ground and could then become unsteady and start to slip downhill. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
