HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in East Bergholt and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the East Bergholt property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the East Bergholt property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the Home Survey consider this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding, with sub-soil shrinkage and soil movement being relatively common. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Visible results may be anything from widening cracks to sticking doors. There is a real benefit in booking a East Bergholt surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. The building foundations

may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Deteriorated timber

On a East Bergholt HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E8' cover?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in East Bergholt are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give home buyers a clear understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. A fairly common example may be flashings which are incompatible with the chosen render. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling are reported on.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor take into account on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in East Bergholt.

Stucco is actually a specific type of render. Normally stucco is layered over brick to form a smooth stone like surface. Stucco is highly grand in appearance and was found on Victorian buildings. it can be prone to defect and East Bergholt surveyors frequently show issues for example, horizontal cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath

Another example of problems can possibly result be when water below flashings which results in the render detaching. Remedying problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.
