HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kineton and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

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

If the Kineton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Kineton property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a home close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms including industrial rubbish. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health problems such as birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will flag up any structural defects resulting from the site. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological database as well as Stratford-on-Avon Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Stone block wall damage

Can houses in Kineton built with stone cause issues for buyers? Which major factors should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like algae will vary with the particular type of stone. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be repointing mortar with a suitable material.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Kineton should be able to supply local stone.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco home in Kineton which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually a form of render. Typically it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a smooth stone like surface. The effect is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Georgian properties for example. it can be problematic and Kineton Building Surveys can report issues such as lateral cracking that describes the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other potential problems could be when water beneath flashings that causes detachment. Re-applying problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are becoming harder to find.
