HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Aylesbury and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Aylesbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Aylesbury property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property and the owner has suggested that it has been constructed with Kentish Rag stone. Are there any major related issues that we should be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Buyers of a stone-built listed building should consider that any repairs are in keeping with the methods and materials used in the original construction. This is monitored by the local council. Defects affecting stone-built houses can vary, staining being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like. Purchasers renovating houses should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. To source stone quarried in Aylesbury, you can contact local suppliers.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor be looking for on a smooth stucco coated regency detached house in Aylesbury.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually just a smooth and flat render. Commonly it is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like surface. It is highly beautiful and is common on some Victorian homes. it can be prone to defect and Aylesbury Building Surveys sometimes discover defects e.g. trapped water resulting in internal damp problems. Other potential problems might include attack from sulphates derived from wet brickwork. Remedying Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A house we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will your Aylesbury Home Survey look into this?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Aylesbury home's foundations, forcing them inward. There is a real benefit in booking a Aylesbury surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
