HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Much Wenlock and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Much Wenlock property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Much Wenlock property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will a Property Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) house in Much Wenlock that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just a form of render. Usually it is applied to brick that sets to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. Stucco is highly attractive and is found on Victorian and Regency properties. it can be prone to defect and Much Wenlock Homebuyer Reports sometimes show issues such as when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks

Another example of problems may result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-applying problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the source of maintenance problems for Much Wenlock home? Can a Much Wenlock Home Survey investigate this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Much Wenlock property, with compression of layers of the sub-soil and considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content being relatively common. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs, such as widening cracks. A Much Wenlock surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a property in Much Wenlock, does the property surveyor consider any flooding, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: www.metoffice.gov.uk). Both home purchasers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a Much Wenlock property through several routes, including seepage through walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Much Wenlock property or on adjacent sites. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
