HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Harbury and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Harbury property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Harbury property's general condition as well as information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when purchasing a building in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including inert refuse disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include methane gas generation. Potential health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Harbury RICS surveyors will note any structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets

in addition to Stratford-on-Avon Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency house in Harbury that I wish to buy.

Stucco is just smooth type of render. Usually it is layered over red brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The coating is highly attractive and is often found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. lateral pattern like cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems may be when dampness beneath sills which results in detachment. Re-applying problems with stucco may be costly as renderers are getting harder to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we investigate downspouts? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather wet weather and the effect it can have on a house are not considered. If you have investigated the property you intend to purchase in warm weather, defects may not have been obvious. Poor drainage can lead to water damage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair fairly cheaply. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
