HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Stockley Park and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Stockley Park property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Stockley Park property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can a Stockley Park House Survey investigate this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to soil movement, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey,

the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco house in Stockley Park which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really just a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. Stucco render is very grand in appearance and is common on some Regency houses. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Stockley Park sometimes highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when movement of the underlying wall results in cracks. Other potential problems may result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Re-applying problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Stockley Park , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does the Stockley Park property surveyor check when the home is surveyed?

Property in and around Stockley Park that are otherwise ideal can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer damage to the roof, including. From the purlins to the tie beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The maintenance of a roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
