About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Leigh

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Leigh and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Leigh property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Leigh property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted cracks across the render on the outside walls, is this subsidence? What subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor investigate?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes may suffer some degree of superficial cracks. In general, homes in Leigh are built with a variety of materials. These will contract at different rates. Superficial cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler and repainted. Inside, keep an eye out for fresh cracks in brick or plaster.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Maple, lime and horse chestnut trees should planted no closer than 20m to the property itself. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
