HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Prestbury and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Prestbury property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Prestbury property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to take notice of when purchasing a house built in around 1790? What impact will the architecture have on upkeep?

Many purchasers hope to own property with real personality. A building's age, however, can create difficulties for an owner, and Prestbury property showcasing traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for listed property, Construction materials, such as original bricks, may be required. This may make the final cost hard to predict. Discuss this with your property surveyor for more information.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a building in the region Endon Quarry on Windmill Lane and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. domestic waste material disposal. There are thousands of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people in the UK including Prestbury. Concerns include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns for example cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Prestbury will consider structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to Cheltenham Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco Victorian semi detached home in Prestbury that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a form of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick hardens to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is highly attractive and is common on some Georgian homes for example. It may have lime in it as well as a grid underneath to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Prestbury Home Buyers Suveys commonly show any number of problems which might include trapped water culminating in the surface breaking which need attention

Another example of problems associated with stucco might include attack from sulphates absorbed from brickwork. Resolving Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as renderers are becoming more difficult to find.
