About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Brackley

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Brackley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Brackley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations on the Brackley property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the Brackley property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Brackley. Is there any brick chimney advice we should be aware of?? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed residences do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also suffer from diverse problems. For instance, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Easy Brickwork of 162 Devonshire Rd, Hornchurch, RM12 4LP on 01708 507443.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Brackley builder suggested subsidence has been a concern. What subsidence issues does the Brackley Surveyor report on?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence.

Soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that sitting on horizontal ground and could then become unsteady and begin to slide downward. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Peat is normally stable when sat below the water table, but if the soil dries, this organic matter will rot. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.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. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
