HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Curdworth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Curdworth property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Curdworth property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Curdworth house and am quite worried that the building might be in danger of movement. Will the Building Survey consider this?

Clay soil can create numerous issues for property owners. Specific issues include soil swelling. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable separation of the skirting board from the floor, to complete structural failure. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Curdworth, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. Parcels of dry 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.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Curdworth , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the RICS surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This often causes anxiety for purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Homes throughout Curdworth can be blighted by difficulties with the roof, for example, incorrectly applied waterproofing. From gables to collar beams, every element of the roof should be reported on. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Curdworth, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the Curdworth surveyors will look for a range of signs, including being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a builder for the job itself. Speak to Assured Maintenance of 100 Coleshill Rd, Water Orton, Birmingham, B46 1RD on 0121-749 4778 for an estimate.

Stone block wall damage

Will a home with stone walls cause issues? What should we be particularly aware of?

Ranging from Wroxton Limestone to Farmington Stone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregularly built walls as stones are less likely to come loose or the mortar to decay. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.
