Home Buyers Survey in Hendon

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Hendon and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Hendon property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works on the Hendon property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Hendon property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a 1988-built property in Hendon and spotted that there is a 19mm crack above the windows in the bathroom. What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the home survey?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Home buyers can confuse subsidence with settlement. Settlement usually occurs in newly constructed homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The property's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. Heave is less common, and may result from the removal of a tree or shrub.

A relatively small number of issues are usually found to be the cause of movement to a property. Collapsed water pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will decompose. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
