Home Buyers Survey in Broseley

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Broseley and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Broseley property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Broseley property's condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a dovecot. What consequences will the rafter roof have on repairs?

Some buyers have considered buying a house with personality, like a farmstead. Older construction methods and materials, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Broseley homes constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a apartment in Broseley and spotted cracks down the gable wall, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence issues does the Property Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes will experience cracking at some stage. New buildings in Broseley and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. In some older homes cracks appear in the Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials contract, absorbing more moisture.

There are a number of factors capable of causing subsidence to Broseley homes. For example, water leaking from a damaged drains will remove layers of soil from around the foundations. By reducing the volume of the subsoil, the earth is more readily displaced by the weight of the property. In serious weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning involves holes being dug 1 metre long and around 1.5 metres deep, along all affected sections of wall, and just beneath the present foundations. Reinforcement bars and concrete are then inserted into these pits to support the structure, as the rest of the foundations are dug out and similarly filled in with concrete. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Broseley, what recommendations will the surveyor make for a 30s residence built with Fletton brick? What impact do Broseley environmental conditions have?

Brick-walled Broseley buildings can indicate various issues and defects, ranging from signs of movement to efflorescence. For instance, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Buildrite Cannock Ltd of 1 Linwood Drive, Hednesford, Cannock, WS12 4SA on 01543 871668.

E.g. Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a home close to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. commercial waste disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health concerns such as birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Broseley will notice structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Shropshire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
