Home Buyers Survey in New Rossington

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the New Rossington property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the New Rossington property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get English Garden Wall bond upkeep guidance for the Edwardian property we're buying?

Brick-built New Rossington residences feature several advantages compared to other building materials. Unfortunately, they also suffer from various issues and defects, such as lack of a damp proof course. For instance, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including M G L Building Services of 26 Riley Road, Tilehurst, Reading, RG30 4UX on 0118-942 8178.

A range of courses arrangements and colours of brick building feature in construction throughout New Rossington. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a 1960-built house in New Rossington and spotted that the cellar door frame was skewed. What are the risks, and what subsidence information does the New Rossington Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new house within a few months to make good any settlement cracks.

Subsidence can be caused by a range of factors. One such issue is that soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that flat ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer could then become unsteady and slip down the incline. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows which stick.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the home we are intending to buy, it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, does a the New Rossington surveyor advise electrical defects?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in New Rossington a qualified surveyor will remark on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. A Surveyor is required to report on concerns such as reporting on the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances like heaters or the whereabouts of the meter or consumer unit. A check for the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

Substandard guttering

On a New Rossington HomeBuyer Report what are common defects an amber light rating impacting 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

One example issue could be undersized gutters. External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere defects in the sewer system.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, with a minimum of technical jargon. Red, amber and green ratings give house buyers indicate the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. This may not be urgent, however.
