HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in North Cornelly and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the North Cornelly property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the North Cornelly property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found that there is a 19mm gap between the basement wall and the door frame when we last viewed the flat. What subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor consider?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Home buyers can confuse subsidence with settlement. Settlement will often occur in newer homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The building's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months.

Cracks that appear quickly may be a strong indication of subsidence. Inside the house, keep an eye out for new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. 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, with no underpinning required. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Can a North Cornelly Home Survey investigate this?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Specific issues include soil swelling. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in North Cornelly, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact will heavy rain have on a North Cornelly home? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which wet weather has on a home is usually overlooked by house purchasers. As an example, rotten wooden gutters strongly suggest that the rainwater goods are damaged, and may lead to cracked foundations and subsidence. Fortunately, drainage problems are quite easy to repair. If not unblocked on a regular basis, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
