HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Queensbury property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Queensbury property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 17th Century coast house in Queensbury. What impact will the home's slate roof have on repairs?

For traditionally-built Queensbury property, age can often be problematic. Houses showcasing traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw that windows in the dining room did not line up, is this subsidence? Is this a serious danger, and what subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be remedied quite easily. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new house after time has passed in order to repair settlement damage.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. Collapsed water pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.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. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
