About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Keyworth

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Keyworth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Keyworth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Keyworth property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Keyworth, and does our RICS surveyor mention it?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which damp weather has on Keyworth buildings is not considered. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include mildew in the attic. This can lead to rotten roof timbers.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair fairly cheaply. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Keyworth subsidence has been a concern. What options are to available to remedy this?

Movement of a building on a structural level is called subsidence. A builder should return to a new building within a few months in order to make repairs.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high sand, gravel or chalk content, as this soil is more easily washed away by flooding. Signs of potential subsidence include new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of insects in the kitchen - How do we investigate further?

Pests like mice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Keyworth. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Signs may not be obvious, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include traps or destruction of tainted materials. If you strongly suspect an issue with mice, or any pest, speak to your RICS surveyor
