HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Batley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Batley property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Batley property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Batley? Does a Batley House Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Specific issues include swelling of the soil. In Batley's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself., such as a hard-to-open lounge door.

Taking precautions, such as even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general

increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a property in Batley, does the chartered surveyor consider water damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses are at risk of floods. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Home Buyers Survey will inform your decision.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a residential property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Batley.

Stucco is really a sort of flat finish solid render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick to form a smooth stone like surface. Stucco is very aesthetic and is common on some Georgian properties. It is similar to plaster. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors frequently focus on defects for instance when it is exposed to driving rain which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the difficulty is discovering damp underneath. Remedying problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as craftsmen are getting harder to find.
