HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Burton upon Stather and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Burton upon Stather property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Burton upon Stather? Can my Burton upon Stather Home Buyers Survey consider this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Burton upon Stather house. Issues range from uneven soil compaction to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable separation of the skirting board from the floor, to complete structural failure. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary. Small areas of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be

taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Damaged Render

What problems will the Burton upon Stather Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Burton upon Stather.

Stucco is actually a kind of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. Stucco is very beautiful and is common on some Regency properties for example. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to plant fibres to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Burton upon Stather can show defects which can include trapped moisture leading to damp problems. Other potential problems might involve attack from sulphates derived from wet underlying brickwork. Re-covering problems can be dear as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I would be advised to check on if intending to buy a flat in Burton upon Stather inside a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local councils. Surveyors in Burton upon Stather must possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and any bearing may have with the building. Values is, more often than not, significantly higher because of conservation areas retaining their original character. However many areas have been neglected and are in a state e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Property surveyors can be expected to report whether the building looks to be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Burton upon Stather Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised by your legal representation. Unconsented adjustments to the property will also be reported, however these should be concern for your lawyer.
