HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Droitwich Spa and which is cheaper?

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

If the Droitwich Spa property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Droitwich Spa property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when purchasing a home proximate to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. domestic rubbish. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns for example abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Droitwich Spa will find structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Wychavon Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building mentioned that the had been issues with damp - What should we do about roof repairs?

This is often asked by property purchasers who know that homes can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof, for example, bowing beams. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from roof battens to trusses. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Droitwich Spa, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Droitwich Spa will look for a range of signs, including a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

The expense of asbestos cement removal, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A local contractor can provide an estimate. Call R & V Taylor Roofing Contractors Ltd of 1 Astwood Villa/Astwood La, Stoke Prior, Bromsgrove, B60 4BB on 01527 821312 for an estimate.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) home in Droitwich Spa that I wish to buy.

Stucco is just a type of render. Typically it is applied to underlying red brick that dries to a smooth stone like surface. The coating is highly grand in appearance and was often found on Regency houses. it can be problematic and Droitwich Spa Home Buyers Suveys can report potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks

Another example of problems might result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-covering problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.
