Home Buyers Survey in Portishead

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Portishead and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Portishead property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Portishead property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw a gap below the skirting board in the lounge, is this subsidence? Is this a urgent concern, and what can be done to resolve subsidence if subsidence is found during the Building Survey?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. Generally, a builder will return to a new home after some months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Cracks that appear quickly may be a strong indication of subsidence. Inside the house, keep an eye out for doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
