HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Blackpool and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Blackpool property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Blackpool property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Blackpool Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency detached house in Blackpool which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact a smooth and flat render. Usually it is applied to red brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco is highly attractive and was often applied to Georgian properties for example. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water and hardens to a dense solid. it can be prone to defect and Blackpool surveyors can detail any number of problems like trapped water leading to problems with damp requiring costly repairs. Other issues could involve sulphate attack from salts derived from wet brickwork. Re-covering Stucco problems may be costly as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a maisonette near to Cropper Road L F S on Cropper Rd and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites take many forms including industrial refuse disposal. There are 1, 000's of sites affect many thousands of people in England and Wales including Blackpool. Concerns might include complex organic chemicals .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the late 30s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to create problems? Does a Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report?

There are a number of concerns associated with clay soil. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable small cracks in the garage wall, to complete structural failure. There is a real benefit in booking a Blackpool surveyor to carry out your House Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.
