HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Worsley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Worsley property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Worsley property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Worsley home and am quite worried that there is a danger of subsidence. Does the Home Survey cover this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Worsley home. Specific problems include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Drought, for instance, can have a significant shrinking effect on clay soil, squeezing the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable warping of floorboards, to complete structural failure. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Worsley, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated

patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that the had been a problem with wet rot, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we do about roof repairs?

Property in and around Worsley in otherwise fine condition could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes, like sagging beams. From roof battens to fascias, many parts of the roof and loft should be reported on. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Worsley, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing specialist in Worsley for the job itself. Speak to Fibrefix Ltd of 10/10/Newholme Gardens, Worsley, Manchester, M28 3ZA on 0161-951 7958 to request an estimate.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Worsley and are looking for a house with handmade bricks. What recommendations will the surveyor make?

Brick-constructed buildings in Worsley feature several advantages, but they can also be affected by numerous defects, such as efflorescence. For example, extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork and may require immediate attention. For more information, contact a local builder, C S Brickwork of 64 Graham Rd, Kirk Sandall, Doncaster, DN3 1JZ on 07940 009607.

Brick-constructed property have been used for centuries, leading to a range of styles and techniques. As an example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
