HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Ross On Wye and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Ross On Wye property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Ross On Wye property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a flat in Ross On Wye and saw that there is a 19mm crack above the windows in the kitchen. What are the risks, and what subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence.

It is not always obvious that subsidence is at work, due to the fact that the usual signs could comfortably be caused by other factors. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise the structure. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Ross On Wye surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Ross On Wye, and think we saw signs of pests in the study. What advice should we get?

Pests like lice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Ross On Wye. This matter should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of insecticides or removal of infected furniture. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation.
