HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Nafferton and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Nafferton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Nafferton property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

External walls

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual Condition rating 3 defects affecting main walls?

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a Nafferton house. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded. In Nafferton, an example may be decaying masonry on veneer walls. Note that concealed elements will not be considered. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a house next to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. non-hazardous waste material. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health concerns such as gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice any structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark database and East Riding of Yorkshire Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Nafferton subsidence may be worth checking. What can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a building which compromises its structural integrity. Most buildings will experience cracking at some stage, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations.

Cracks are a clear clue of subsidence. These could, fortunately, be merely superficial. In severe weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. 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.
