Home Buyers Survey in Holbrook

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Holbrook and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Holbrook property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Holbrook property's state of repair as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Scottish bond advice, can a Holbrook surveyor help? Does brick decay faster in Holbrook weather?

Holbrook homes with brick walls can be affected by both minor and serious issues, such as cracks. The property surveyor would usually include these, with feedback. A defect requiring immediate attention is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Contact several local builders for quotes, including G W Brickwork of 22 Southerton Rd, London, W6 0PH on 07547 037893.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations create issues for Holbrook property? Can my Home Survey consider this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Holbrook buyers. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Signs like a hard-to-open bedroom door can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Steps like even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. Patches of sodden soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a Holbrook home. Should we get a house surveyor?

Properties are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to pests can include professional cleaning or removal of infected furniture.
