Home Buyers Survey in Wolvey

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Wolvey and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

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

If you intend to make substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Wolvey property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor said subsidence might be a problem. What can be done to resolve subsidence if subsidence is found during the house survey?

Movement of the foundations of a structure is called subsidence. In some older structures cracks are noticeable in Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials absorb moisture.

Soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that sitting flat and may become unstable and begin to slide downward. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Peat is normally stable when sat below the water table, but if the soil dries, this organic matter will rot. This causes the subsoil to be compacted as its volume is reduced, by the sheer weight and pressure of the building above.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. 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. Oak and elm trees must be located well away from the property, at least 30m. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Wolvey, what input does a surveyor in Wolvey give for homes with rat-trap bond walls? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed buildings in Wolvey demonstrate several benefits over buildings using regular cut stone, but they can also be affected by various issues and defects. For example, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and may require immediate attention. Conner T Brickwork Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 30 Burwell Rd, London, E10 7QG or 07961 513134.

For example, English garden wall bond or header bond may be used in the construction of buildings in Wolvey. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a building near to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including industrial rubbish disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural defects linked to the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological data sets and Rugby Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco coated home in Wolvey.

Stucco is actually just dense solid render. Typically it is layered over brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is highly beautiful and is/was often found on Regency houses. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can show issues such as horizontal cracking revealing the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other potential problems might be when moisture gets in beneath sills which causes detachment. Re-applying Stucco problems may be difficult as craftsmen are becoming rarer.
