Home Buyers Survey in Ellesmere Port

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Ellesmere Port and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ellesmere Port property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Ellesmere Port property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence-related defects will my home survey review?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. In addition, some homes in Ellesmere Port are built with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

Non-structural cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler and repainted. In serious temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
