About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Warkworth

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Warkworth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Warkworth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Warkworth property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A builder has suggested subsidence has been a problem. What solutions are to available to fix this?

Movement of the foundations of a structure is called subsidence. In addition, some homes in Warkworth are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Inside the house, keep an eye out for new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. 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, with no underpinning required. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning is a lengthy process used to stabilise the foundations of a property, and is required in around a quarter of subsidence matters. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
