HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Moor Row and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Moor Row property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Moor Row property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can property in Moor Row built with stone create upkeep problems for buyers? What potential issues must we watch out for, and what does the survey cover?

Repair fees for stone-built homes can be higher than for more standard , and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Repair advice often includes repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Purchasers renovating homes should be aware that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. To source stone quarried in Moor Row, you can contact local suppliers.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have been told that subsidence in Moor Row might be a problem. What subsidence information does the Moor Row house survey include?

Movement of the foundations of a building is called subsidence. In addition, some homes in Moor Row are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the bricks or render outside the property, or the widening of existing cracks, may indicate subsidence. Inside the house, keep an eye out for new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Using large concrete pins, placed beneath current foundations and extending deep into the ground, underpinning is expensive, totalling £1000s, but it can be very effective. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Moor Row that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is a form of solid render. Typically it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a very smooth surface. Stucco is very attractive and is often found on Victorian buildings. It is very similar to plaster. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a grid underneath to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Moor Row can discover issues such as trapped water culminating in problems with damp

Another example of problems may be when the stucco has been taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course. Re-applying Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting rarer.
