HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Branston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Branston property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Branston property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a home proximate to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. inert waste material. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks might include tars and other hazardous materials .

Building Surveys and valuations in Branston will examine structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological databases and East Staffordshire Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Branston, and does our Branston surveyor mention it?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rainfall has on Branston homes is not given the attention it deserves. If you have investigated the home in warm weather, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that downspouts are worth a closer look include corroded downspouts. Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to remedy, if not neglected. If left untreated, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency home in Branston that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is a kind of render. Typically it is layered over underlying brick to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The finish is highly aesthetic and is common on some Victorian and Regency houses for example. It is very similar to plaster. it can be problematic and Surveyors commonly detail issues such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems could result from the heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Resolving problems with stucco may be difficult as skilled tradesmen are becoming harder to find.
