HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Stourport On Severn and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Stourport On Severn property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Stourport On Severn property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a property in the region Brant Farm Landfill and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including industrial refuse disposal. Thousands of sites affect 100, 000's people in the UK including Stourport On Severn. Worries include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health concerns for example downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological data sets and Wyre Forest Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the early 80s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to cause problems? What should we expect a Stourport On Severn Building Survey to include?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home in Stourport On Severn can have unwanted consequences, with subsidence being a common example. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a house. Signs like sticking doors 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 home will be considered. 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.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Stourport On Severn which we wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a form of solid render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is very attractive and is common on some Georgian houses. Sometimes it can contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Stourport On Severn Home Buyers Suveys commonly detail defects which can include trapped moisture culminating in the render failing needing repair.

Another example of problems may be when the render is taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Re-covering Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.
