Home Buyers Survey in Stretford

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Stretford and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Stretford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Stretford property's state of repair in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the property. A builder should return to a new home after some months in order to repair settlement damage.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with an above-average concentration of gravel, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks or flooding. In severe weather, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.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. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
