subsidence.png

Subsidence Inspection

The surveyor will look for signs of subsidence within the property paying special attention to signs of cracking internally and to the external walls. As a rule, if you can fit the width of a 50p into a crack in a wall, it could be a sign of subsidence. Our surveyors will flag in their reports if they feel you need to instruct a structural engineer to review a crack further.

Damp Testing

There are numerous reasons why a property can be affected by damp. The Surveyor will take samples in the property using a damp meter and assess the condition of the property to provide a report on whether they feel the property is affected by damp. Further investigations maybe suggested including getting a damp and timber specialist.

Asbestos

Prior to its banned use, asbestos was a commonly used building material, particularly as part of cement products, floor tiles and roofing shingles. Asbestos was used for its durability and resistance to heat and is commonly found in artex ceilings, garage roofing and chimney stacks. Your surveyor will confirm if they suspect any materials in the property have asbestos and if so, suggest getting an asbestos surveyor to intrusively taking samples of the asbestos to confirm the type.

If they find any issues during the inspection, our Surveyor will flag them up in the Home Buyers Survey and give you advice on what you should do to solve them.

If you are concerned about woodworm in connection with buying or selling a property in Evesham, or any other defects with the property you MUST get a Home Buyers Survey as the costs of repairing the defects can run into thousands of pounds.

There are also tributaries of the river such as the Battleton Brook and the River Isbourne that also can cause flood alerts to properties on streets such as Overbrook and Pershore Road.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).

WorcestershireWorcestershire is a county in the West Midlands and Worcester is its county town and is a cathedral city, containing the beautiful Worcester Cathedral. The county is mainly rural, containing the Malvern Hills, which border it to the west. The Malvern Hills have been classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Worcestershire Beacon, which at 425m is the highest point in the county, lies in this range.

Some parts of the county to its north east are in the industrial area of the West Midlands. Major settlements include Kidderminster, Bromsgrove and Redditch (all satellite towns of Birmingham). Adjoining counties include West Midlands, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire, Staffordshire and Shropshire.

Worcester is the largest populated urban area and contains the county's one university, the University of Worcester. It is also the main transport hub, offering direct railway services from Worcester Shrub Hill to London Paddington and many other major conurbations.

There are 3 motorways running through the county; the M5, the M42 and M50. Two major rivers flow through the county, the Severn and the Avon.

Arguably Kidderminster Harriers is the county's most famous football team – it is non-league and one of the oldest in the country – and Worcestershire County Cricket Club's (WCCC) home ground is at New Road in Worcester. WCCC last won the county championship in the late 80s in the era of Ian Botham, Graham Dilley and Graeme Hick.

The village of Broadheath, about 6 miles (10 km) North-West of the city of Worcester, is the birthplace of the composer Edward Elgar. Worcester’s Berrow’s Journal has a claim to be the oldest surviving newspaper in the world, publishing started in 1709.

Is a Mortgage valuation a defect survey?

It is a common misconception that a mortgage valuation is a HomeBuyers Survey and this can leave HomeBuyers exposed to high repair costs that could have been negotiated with the seller. A mortgage valuation is conducted by the lender’s surveyor to assess the value of the property you are considering buying in Evesham and they do not provide a detailed report on structural defects. 

A HomeBuyers Survey details defects and includes a full appraisal of the property independently to anyone else including the mortgage lender. You can use the information to obtain quotes to fix any defects and gives you the evidence to potentially share the costs with the seller.


Most savvy buyers make sure they get a HomeBuyers survey from an independent surveyor to make sure the property they are buying is free from defects. Call us on 0333 344 3234 to get the best HomeBuyers survey for your property in Evesham.
