Home Buyers Survey in Isle of Sheppey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Isle of Sheppey and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Isle of Sheppey property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Isle of Sheppey property's state of repair as well as information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Isle of Sheppey builder has said subsidence is an issue affecting the flat. What subsidence information does the Isle of Sheppey property survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under their own weight. A builder should return to a new house after time has passed so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

In clay soil regions, a dry spell will lower the water table. This dries out and shrinks the clay, straining the foundations of the home and which causes subsidence. In severe weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning involves holes being dug 1 metre long and around 1.5 metres deep, along all affected sections of wall, and just beneath the present foundations. Reinforcement bars and concrete are then inserted into these pits to support the structure, as the rest of the foundations are dug out and similarly filled in with concrete. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
