HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Audley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Audley property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Audley property's state of repair as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will a Chartered Surveyor consider on a stucco house in Audley that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a kind of smooth render. Usually it is layered over brick that sets to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The finish is very attractive and is common on some Victorian houses. it can be prone to defect and Audley Home Buyers Suveys can focus on defects e.g. when movement of the underlying wall causes cracks. Other potential problems could result from the pressure from heavy loads above such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-coating problems can be costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a maisonette in the region a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. non-hazardous rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include complex organic chemicals. Health issues like cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Audley will consider structural issues connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Newcastle-under-Lyme Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying a higher price for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on regency cottage in Audley?

Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its new title some time ago by RICS. If you are buying a modified property such as an unloved house, the Building Survey is now the best choice to get. Subsequent to a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the surveyor's formal report is sent to the client specifying any significant advice concerning the state of repair of the house.

There are several provisos with any survey to consider insofar as a qualified surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the of the Audley property such as removing roof space contents.
