Home Buyers Survey in Crowland

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Crowland and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Crowland property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Crowland property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder has said subsidence is a concern impacting the flat. Is this a major concern, and what can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

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 home's own weight. Heave is less common, and can be caused when a tree dies or is uprooted.

Subsidence can be caused by a range of factors. For example, water leaking from a broken drainpipe or mains pipe will remove layers of soil from around the foundations. This reduces the volume of the subsoil, allowing the weight of the property to distort the supporting ground. Inside the property, keep an eye out for sticking doors or windows.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. 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. 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 viewed the building we are interested to move into, it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - does a the Crowland surveyor advise electrical defects?

When preparing a Home Survey in Crowland a qualified surveyor should usually mention the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. This should include an overview inspection of the open parts of the wiring and other things, for example verifying the condition of visible wiring. Verifying the location of the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey. Verifying the location of the documents from the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE recommend an electrical check need be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting). To get nearby Crowland advice on domestic electrical systems call Hibbins D C , 1 Green Rd, Eye, Peterborough, PE6 7YR .
