HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Liversedge and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Liversedge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Liversedge property's general condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Liversedge House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will a Surveyor take into account on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Liversedge that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just a kind of smooth render. Typically it is layered over brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The finish is highly aesthetic and is found on Victorian and Georgian houses. It is similar to mortar. It used to contain lime in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Liversedge surveyors can highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems might result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Re-applying Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will my Liversedge Home Buyers Survey look into this?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including uneven soil compaction. There may be little evidence of underlying defects, such as a sticking door in the kitchen. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Liversedge, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. 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.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor inspect the state of the gas heaters?

The will locate and visually look at any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters at the home, in addition to gas associated appliances or installations, for instance fixed external ventilation hearths. However, the Liversedge qualified surveyor will not remove any fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.
