Home Buyers Survey in Fleetwood

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Fleetwood property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Fleetwood property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We noticed cracks across the render on the outside walls, is this subsidence? What subsidence issues does the Property Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the property. In some older homes cracks appear in Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials contract and draw in water.

Cracks to a sitting room are a plain indication of subsidence, but they may be harmless. On the inside, keep an eye out for new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Fleetwood, and will the house surveyor look for possible water damage?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before flooding begins. In addition, the house survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home in Fleetwood enables the house surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact will rain have on a Fleetwood property? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rain can have on houses in Fleetwood is rarely paid due attention by house purchasers. One indication that rainwater goods are blocked is flaking or efflorescence on external walls. Blocked rainwater goods can result in lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair fairly cheaply. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a building close to Jameson Road Landfill Site Phase 1 near Jameson Road and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. commercial refuse disposal. There are thousands of sites affect 100, 000's people in England including Fleetwood. Risks include structurally instability. Potential health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in Fleetwood will note any structural defects connected with the site. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Wyre Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Dutch bond brick on this Fleetwood home is in poor condition. What are the possible consequences? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built Fleetwood residential property feature several advantages compared to other types of construction. Unfortunately, they also indicate several common problems. This could be anything from sulphate expansion to frost damaged pointing. For example, frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely and may require immediate attention. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Green Steve, Lilac Cottage/Fryern Ct Rd, Burgate, Fordingbridge, SP6 1LZ on 07944 572460 for a quote for repair work.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Stone block wall damage

Can Ham Hill stone-built houses be a challenge. Which potential issues should we consider?

Ranging from Waddington Sandstone to Spynie Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.
