Home Buyers Survey in Stamfordham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Stamfordham and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Stamfordham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Stamfordham property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Stamfordham is a concern. What subsidence-related defects will my house survey inspect?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a house which compromises its structural integrity. Most houses will experience cracking at some stage, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations. Heave is less common, and is caused by the death or removal of a large shrub or tree and its root network no longer draws water from the subsoil.

Cracks that appear quickly could indicate subsidence. In extreme weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.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. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Using large concrete pins, placed beneath current foundations and extending deep into the ground, underpinning is expensive, totalling £1000s, but it can be very effective. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying more money for a full structural survey, as opposed to a Homebuyer Report when considering Edwardian house in Stamfordham?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification a while ago by RICS. When buying an unusual Stamfordham house, for example an older house, this is the most suitable choice of home survey. It details full and often critical insight concerning the property's construction on top of any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.

. External sports facilities (buildings not the facilities themselves) should be looked at.
