Home Buyers Survey in Glenfield

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Glenfield and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Glenfield property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Glenfield property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have read that subsidence in Glenfield has been a concern. What are the risks, and what subsidence-related defects will my Home Buyers Survey examine?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence is sometimes referred to as settlement, but this is incorrect. Settlement generally happens in recently built homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture builds up in the soil, causing the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Cracks that appear suddenly could indicate subsidence. Inside the property, keep an eye out for fresh cracks in brick or plaster.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
