About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hartlebury

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hartlebury and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Hartlebury property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Hartlebury property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an old converted cow-house. What effect will the thatched roof have on upkeep?

Many purchasers would be interested in owning a home with character, such as a period conversion. A property's age, however, can concern buyers. Structures featuring traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons to opt for the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report if buying a defective house?

Albeit commonly and incorrectly described as Full Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike the correct term is actually now Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if buying a mid century or later unmodified Hartlebury house assembled from standard construction materials and methods. A Building Survey would be the advisable one to go for the house mentioned. Two to three days after a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the house, a formal written report will be sent to the client specifying any crucial information concerning the standard of construction and repair of the house.

There will be certain restrictions with any survey insofar as a surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Hartlebury house, an example being moving heavy furniture.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a property in Hartlebury and found that the lounge door frame was skewed. Is this a major concern, and what subsidence-related matters will the Hartlebury Surveyor reveal?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be rectified quite easily. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water builds up in the soil, which may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

In clay soil regions, a long period of dry weather will cause the moisture level of the soil to fall. This dries out, causing the clay to contract, putting a strain on the foundations and which can result in movement. 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.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
