HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Barnt Green and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Barnt Green property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Barnt Green property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to look out for when purchasing an older property? What consequences will the residence's box frame structure have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers would like to own a old, characterful home one day. The age of a structure, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Barnt Green houses employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Barnt Green which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco is applied to underlying brick to form a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Georgian homes. it can be prone to defect and Barnt Green Building Surveys commonly discover potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance horizontal visible cracking revealing the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems might result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-applying Stucco problems may be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor mentioned subsidence has been a problem. What solutions are to available to fix this?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. In the majority of cases, subsidence can be remedied. A builder should return to a new structure after six months in order to make repairs.

Subsidence can be difficult to diagnose because the issues which a Barnt Green surveyor will seek to find could quite easily be as the result of several factors. Inside, keep an eye out for doors and windows which stick.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
