HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hampden Pk and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hampden Pk property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Hampden Pk property's condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will your RICS Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco coated home in Hampden Pk.

Stucco is really just a sort of flat finish render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a smooth flat finish. The effect is very appealing and is often found on Victorian buildings. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very like plaster to work with. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a plastic under mesh to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Hampden Pk Building Surveys can show potentially expensive to remedy problems like trapped moisture resulting in damp problems. Other issues may include when the application has been taken down to ground level and bypasses the DPC. Resolving problems can be dear as the skills are getting rarer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Hampden Pk? Does a Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Hampden Pk home will have an impact. Issues range from severe changes in the water table level to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. For example, minor wall cracks in the kitchen may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Hampden Pk, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Traditionally built property

What should we consider when purchasing older property in Hampden Pk? What consequences will the property's age have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers in Hampden Pk plan to buy a unique or characterful property. A property's age, however, can worry purchasers, and Buildings constructed with traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. Discuss this with your surveyor for further advice.
