HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Wilsden and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Wilsden property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Wilsden property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a maisonette proximate to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: domestic refuse. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health problems such as cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Wilsden surveyors will flag up structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out conveyancing searches of the Landmark databases and Bradford Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact should wet conditions have on a Wilsden home?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather wet weather and the effect it can have on Wilsden property are not given the attention it deserves by buyers. If you have only visited the property in dry weather, issues may have been hidden. Signs that downspouts are damaged include spalling on walls around drainage. Blocked rainwater goods can result in a damp or flooded cellar.

Fortunately, guttering issues are quite easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder has said subsidence has been worth checking affecting the apartment. What subsidence issues does the Wilsden Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a building which compromises its structural integrity. Most buildings experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure, particularly new-build properties or those with a recent extension

In clay soil regions, a long period of dry weather will cause the moisture level of the soil to fall. This will dry, contracting the soil around the property as it does so, pulling on the homes foundations and causing movement. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will rot. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. 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. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
