HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Burnham On Crouch and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Burnham On Crouch property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Burnham On Crouch property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes create issues for the owner? Are there any factors that need to be investigated? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including mould. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Burnham On Crouch homes, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will my Surveyor examine on a stucco rendered regency house in Burnham On Crouch.

Stucco is smooth type of solid render. Usually it is layered over brick that sets to a very smooth surface. Stucco is highly appealing and is common on some Victorian buildings for example. It is very like plaster and mortar to apply. It may contain lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Burnham On Crouch Building Surveys sometimes detail defects like trapped moisture culminating in the surface breaking which need attention.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when the stucco is taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Resolving problems with stucco may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be a source of difficulty for Burnham On Crouch house? What should we expect a Burnham On Crouch HomeBuyer Report to include?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Specific issues include soil swelling. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Burnham On Crouch home's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered.
