Home Buyers Survey in Hethersett

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hethersett and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Hethersett property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Hethersett property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Hethersett, what suggestions can a property surveyor in Hethersett make for a 90s house constructed with English bond walls? Does brick decay faster in Hethersett weather?

Brick-constructed houses in Hethersett feature several advantages over buildings using regular cut stone, but they can also suffer from distinct issues. These can include crypto-florescence or thermal movement. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. S C Brickwork & Plastering at 19 Balgowan Rd, Beckenham, BR3 4HJ on 020 8325 6951.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues for Hethersett home? Does a Hethersett Building Survey discuss soil composition the report?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property in Hethersett can have unwanted consequences. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! A Hethersett surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
