Home Buyers Survey in Woodford Green

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Woodford Green property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Woodford Green property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Woodford Green might be an issue. What subsidence issues will the home survey review?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. Generally, a builder will return to a new house after time has passed in order to repair settlement damage. Cracks are a clear indication of subsidence. Fortunately, these are in many cases benign. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise the structure. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

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. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. 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.
