HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Trentham and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Trentham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Trentham property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A neighbour warned us about an infestation affecting some homes. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Scare stories about building pest problems are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as cockroaches as minor annoyances. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. Signs may not be obvious. For example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Treatment for pests may include chemical treatment. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange. Speak to an expert, e.g. Alpha Pest Control Limited, The White House, 67 Heron Street, Heron Cross, Stoke on Trent, ST4 3AR on 0800 092 5999, for more detail.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Trentham , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What aspects of the roofing will be checked?

Properties in Trentham in otherwise fine condition may be exposed to difficulties with the roof. From rafters to ceiling joists, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. The Trentham surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A builder with a recommendation from a friend or family member should be able to assist with a quote.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We noticed cracks down the gable wall, is this subsidence? What subsidence-related defects will my Home Buyers Survey investigate?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes will experience cracking at some stage. Less common than subsidence, but which can be as damaging to a home, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Trentham. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, impacting the property's structure in clay-rich soil, as water is drawn out of the soil by plant life. Inside, keep an eye out for rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
