Home Buyers Survey in Higher Kinnerton

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Higher Kinnerton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Higher Kinnerton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Higher Kinnerton property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a house in Higher Kinnerton and saw there are no cracks in the brickwork outside, but kitchen floor dips noticeably. What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be remedied.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Higher Kinnerton. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, impacting the property's structure in clay-rich soil, as moisture is taken up from the ground by trees. Inside, keep an eye out for rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a residential property with Clipsham stone walls. Are there specific problems to consider, and what will the survey reveal?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of buildings in Higher Kinnerton. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like weathered stone will vary with the particular type of stone.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
