HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Rugeley and which is cheaper?

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

If the Rugeley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Rugeley property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I should check out if purchasing a home in Rugeley in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities. Rugeley surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and any relation they have on the building and its value. House prices is, more often than not, higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to them being in their original state.

Surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the location looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by your legal representation. Unapproved modifications to the property may also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

The average for houses and flats combined was £165, 532. 1, Oakwood, Rugeley, Cannock Chase, Staffordshire, WS15 2YL a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £175, 000 .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor investigate?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the bricks or render outside the property, or noticeable widening cracks which have remained stable for some time, may indicate subsidence. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Maple, lime and horse chestnut trees should planted no closer than 20m to the property itself. 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 Rugeley surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.
