About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Thorne

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Thorne and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Thorne property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Thorne property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an older gatehouse in Thorne. What impact will the house's cruck frame have on repairs?

Some buyers in Thorne have looked at purchasing a home with character. Older construction methods and materials, however, can sometimes be an issue, and Thorne property built using traditional methods can be a chore to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, Traditional materials may be required. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. Mention this to your RICS surveyor for more information. Built between 1680 and 1685, 6 Silver Street is an example of a traditional property in Thorne.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a building proximate to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. hazardous rubbish. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health problems such as abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Thorne RICS surveyors will find structural problems resulting from the site. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases as well as Doncaster Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a house in Thorne and saw evidence of wall cracks in the basement. What subsidence information does the Thorne house survey include?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be resolved. In some older buildings cracks are revealed in warmer weather that close up in the Winter when the materials absorb moisture. These cracks are usually completely harmless.

Subsidence can be difficult to diagnose because the issues which a Thorne surveyor will seek to find could comfortably be caused by a number of factors. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then decomposes, can also destabilise all or part of a foundation. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Maple, lime and horse chestnut trees should planted no closer than 20m to the property itself. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. 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. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. 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.
