HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Dymock and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Dymock property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Dymock property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a ground floor flat in Dymock, does the residential surveyor search for signs of flood damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: www.metoffice.gov.uk), and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home enables the chartered surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems for Dymock house? Can my Dymock Home Survey consider this?

Factors from rising damp to groundwater flooding can cause problems for a property-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a building. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Dymock property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Dymock, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco regency home in Dymock that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just dense solid render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. The effect is very aesthetic and is was often applied to Georgian houses. It is very similar to plaster. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Dymock commonly reveal any number of problems for instance when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems might result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Remedying problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming rarer.
