HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Moreton In Marsh and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Moreton In Marsh property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Moreton In Marsh property's general condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Moreton In Marsh that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually dense solid render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick to form a very smooth surface. The effect is very attractive and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency buildings. The composition is almost exactly the same as plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Moreton In Marsh commonly reveal issues e.g. when it is faced with driving rain which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues could result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Fixing Stucco problems can be expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Moreton In Marsh Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Moreton In Marsh property will include a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will take into account experience of property in Moreton In Marsh and other factors about the property e.g. state of repair Surveyors also examine construction type and will use other assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Moreton In Marsh conjectures like the property being insurable, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like local Moreton In Marsh industrial considerations, also being considered.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Moreton In Marsh? Can a Moreton In Marsh Building Survey investigate this?

There are several concerns associated with clay soil. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. In Moreton In Marsh's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. Signs like sticking doors or minor wall cracks in the kitchen can be early indications of very serious structural issues. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Moreton In Marsh, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. 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.
