Home Buyers Survey in Pinnerwood Park

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Pinnerwood Park and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Pinnerwood Park property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Pinnerwood Park property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Pinnerwood Park and are looking for a 60s house constructed with brick walls. What input does a Pinnerwood Park property surveyor give? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built homes feature several advantages, but they will also experience a range of defects. This could be anything from vertical cracking to lack of a damp proof course. For instance, sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat and should be taken very seriously. Contact Darby M J for a repairs estimate at 01279 724042 or 84 Sheering Lower Rd, Sawbridgeworth, CM21 9LH.

For home purchasers in Pinnerwood Park seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I have heard that clay soil can cause difficulties for homes in Pinnerwood Park. Will a Home Survey look into this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects, with subsidence being a common example. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Steps like taking care not to let plant life, including some as bushes and trees, take root close to the property can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
