About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Queens Gate

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Queens Gate and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Queens Gate property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Queens Gate property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Scottish bond repair advice for the Tudor property we are buying? Is age a factor?

Brick-constructed buildings feature several advantages. However, they can also be affected by a number of issues. Your house surveyor would usually include these, with feedback. One particularly serious issue is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Houlahan Darren may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 58 Mckay Av, Torquay, TQ14FD or 01803 203785.

Buyers in Queens Gate should consider that a broad range of techniques are used in properties built throughout the ages. As an example, stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Queens Gate? Can my Home Buyers Survey consider this?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Issues range from shrinking of clay soil to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years, such as warped window frames in the lounge. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like ensuring rainwater goods and drainage all function efficiently. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.
