Home Buyers Survey in Burnham On Crouch

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Burnham On Crouch and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Burnham On Crouch property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Burnham On Crouch property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a property in Burnham On Crouch and spotted that the lounge door frame was skewed, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor investigate?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. Newer homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. Many homes in Burnham On Crouch are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

Subsidence-related cracks are in most cases wider as the crack migrates upward. Signs of potential subsidence include new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Using large concrete pins, placed beneath current foundations and extending deep into the ground, underpinning is expensive, totalling £1000s, but it can be very effective. 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. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Sussex bond advice for the Burnham On Crouch house we are purchasing? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built Burnham On Crouch apartments demonstrate several benefits in comparison to other forms of building. Unfortunately, they also show signs of numerous defects, such as DPC failure. One frequently reported defect is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Howells Bricklaying & General Builders at 13 Chapel Rd, Swinton, Manchester, M27 0HF should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0161-793 7900.

Burnham On Crouch home purchasers may need to consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours have been used for centuries, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.

If the Burnham On Crouch surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
