HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Gnosall and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Gnosall property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Gnosall property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in Gnosall which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Normally stucco is applied to underlying brick to form a smooth and attractive finish. The coating is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Gnosall Homebuyer Reports sometimes discover defects for example, lateral cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints.

Another example of problems associated with stucco can possibly result be when moisture below windows which results in the render detaching. Re-covering Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting rarer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does rainfall have on our new Gnosall building, and does our HomeBuyer Report mention it?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact rain can have on a residence is not given enough thought by home buyers. For instance, spalling on walls around drainage can often mean that the drainage systems are blocked. This can lead to collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

Whether buying in Gnosall or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy, if not neglected. If left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What consequence does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Does the Building Survey cover this?

Negative effects that clay soil can have on a structure can create long-term problems for Gnosall buyers. Issues range from groundwater level variations 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. Drought, for instance, can have a shrinking effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Gnosall house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like swift repair of any collapsed drains. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
