Home Buyers Survey in Colne

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Colne and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Colne property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Colne property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent mentioned subsidence could be a problem affecting the property. What are the risks, and what subsidence information does the Colne house survey include?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement does occur in more modern homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. In some older homes cracks may be visible in the Summer months[ that close up in the winter] when the materials contract, absorbing more moisture.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. For example, water leaking from a broken pipes will clear away soil which supports the structure. By reducing the volume of the subsoil, the earth is more readily displaced by the weight of the property. Inside the property, keep an eye out for new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. 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. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.
