HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Lyndhurst and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Lyndhurst property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Lyndhurst property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Lyndhurst.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really just a kind of solid render. Normally stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth flat finish. It is very attractive and is was often applied to Georgian homes. It is very like mortar (sand and cement). Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a grid underneath to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Lyndhurst Home Buyers Suveys sometimes reveal any number of problems which can include trapped moisture culminating in problems with damp needing repair. Other issues could include when the render has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC. Re-applying problems can be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour said that lost tile pegs had been a concern - What does a chartered surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This is a common concern for house purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Houses across Lyndhurst may be exposed to issues with the roof like. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the dormer windows to the ceiling joists. The property surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Lyndhurst, but it is a health and safety necessity. A roofing contractor in the local area with positive reviews can provide a quote. Contact Callaway R B of 11 Broadbent Clo, Rownhams, Southampton, SO16 8LQ on 023 8073 1731 for a quote.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Lyndhurst? Does the Lyndhurst Property Survey cover this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. Drought, for instance, can have a measurable contracting effect on clay soil, compromising the property's structural integrity and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the drawing room to a difficult-to-open drawing room window. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like removal of any blockages in the guttering and drains, to prevent water leaking into the soil. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
