Home Buyers Survey in Fenham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Fenham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Fenham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the Fenham property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Fenham property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a home in Fenham and spotted that the garage floor dipped in one corner, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence information does the Fenham house survey include?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be put right. Less common than subsidence, but which can be as damaging to a home, heave occurs when the ground is forced up rather than down.

Many houses develop superficial cracks in a doorway, simply as a result of settlement. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. 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, with no underpinning required. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may high levels of rainfall have on our new Fenham home? And could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rain has on properties is often overlooked. If you have visited the home in on a clear day, obvious defects may be harder to find. This could then result in collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

Fortunately, guttering issues are usually easy to repair, unless they are untreated or poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
