Home Buyers Survey in Normanton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Normanton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Normanton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Normanton property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour mentioned that the had been issues with poor insulation, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our Normanton surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in Normanton. Homes throughout Normanton could feature roofing problems. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the eaves to the parapet walls. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like insulating the attic, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A builder from the area with good feedback should be able to assist with a quote.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be rectified more easily than you might expect. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water can collect in the ground, which causes the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

In regions with a high concentration of clay soil, a long period of dry weather will cause the moisture level of the soil to fall. This dries out, causing the clay to contract, putting a strain on the foundations and which causes subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows which stick.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This need not be expensive.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Normanton surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.
