About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Shirebrook

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Shirebrook and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Shirebrook property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Shirebrook property's condition along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish bond maintenance tips, can the surveyor help?

Brick-constructed conversions in Shirebrook demonstrate several benefits, but they can also indicate considerable issues. For example, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and may require immediate attention.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Shirebrook, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will the HomeBuyer Report consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Shirebrook property, with subsidence being a common example. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Shirebrook property's foundations, forcing them inward. There is a real benefit in booking a Shirebrook surveyor to carry out your Home Buyers Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Parcels of waterlogged soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
