HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Newcastle under Lyme and which one is the cheapest?

If the Newcastle under Lyme property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you comprehensive details of the Newcastle under Lyme property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Newcastle under Lyme property built in the mid 60s, but it has clay foundations. Can the Building Survey consider this?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Newcastle under Lyme property. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural

deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Damaged Render

What problems will your Chartered Surveyor look out for on a stipple rendered (stucco) home in Newcastle under Lyme.

Stucco is really a form of render. Usually stucco is layered over underlying brick to form a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is very attractive and is/was found on Regency houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Newcastle under Lyme Homebuyer Reports sometimes focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when settlement of the wall results in cracks

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-covering problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a building close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. inert waste material disposal. No one really wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include hazardous chemicals. Potential health issues for example birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Newcastle under Lyme will consider structural issues linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases and Newcastle-under-Lyme Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
