About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Bloomsbury

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Bloomsbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Bloomsbury property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a property in Bloomsbury and saw that the lounge door frame was skewed. Is this a serious risk, and what subsidence information does the Bloomsbury home survey include?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement usually occurs in newly constructed homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months. Most homes in Bloomsbury are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage. Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. One such issue is that soil on ground which slopes downward is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and begin to slide downward. Inside the house, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. 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 Bloomsbury surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.
