HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Alderley Edge and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Alderley Edge property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Alderley Edge property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor take into account on a stucco rendered regency house in Alderley Edge.

Stucco is a form of solid render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a very smooth surface. It is very appealing and is found on Victorian and Regency buildings. it can be problematic

and Alderley Edge surveyors commonly discover any number of problems e.g. when movement of the underlying wall causes cracks

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the burden of heavy load above such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-covering Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Alderley Edge?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the effect which wet weather has on homes is often overlooked. If you have visited the new home in warm weather, problems are unlikely to be visible.

Fortunately, guttering issues are quite easy to repair, if identified early. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Traditionally built property

What should we consider when buying a building constructed in 1730 in Alderley Edge? Will the property's age be a problem?

A building's age can concern buyers. Alderley Edge homes employing traditional methods can be challenging to maintain. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Construction materials, such as original bricks, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings.
