Home Buyers Survey in Cudworth

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cudworth and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Cudworth property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Cudworth property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Cudworth building will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. In order to determine the value of the property the surveyor will call upon local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and use other assumptions such as the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

It will be assumed that there is an absence of any serious legal issues like access to the property over estate roadways. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area assumptions like services, are made in addition to Cudworth environmental issues like local Cudworth industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of cracks along the cellar ceiling, is this subsidence? How could this affect the property, and what subsidence issues will the HomeBuyer Report look into?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement will occur in newly constructed homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new home after six months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Many homes develop superficial cracks in a ceiling plaster, due to settlement, changes in temperature and humidity. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. 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. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
