HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Nuthall and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Nuthall property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Nuthall property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old gatehouse. What impact will the property's cladding have on repairs?

Older construction methods and materials can concern buyers. Homes constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. Constructed in the 18th century, Low Wood Road, Hempshill Hall, N-W in Nuthall is a good example of a Post Medieval country house.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Surveyor look out for on a stucco coated home in Nuthall that I wish to buy.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is actually a kind of smooth solid render. Normally it is applied to red brick hardens to form a smooth flat finish. Stucco is very attractive and is was often applied to Regency homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors can show defects for instance lateral hairline cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other potential problems can possibly result be when dampness under DPCs which results in large areas of detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming rarer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor said subsidence is a concern impacting the home. What subsidence-related matters will the Nuthall Surveyor review?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures may suffer some degree of superficial cracks, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations. In addition, some homes in Nuthall are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

There are a number of factors capable of causing subsidence to Nuthall homes. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, undermine foundations to cause subsidence, particularly in clay-rich soil, as water is removed from the soil by plant life. Inside, keep an eye out for sticking doors or windows.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. 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 tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
