HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Thornbury and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Thornbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works on the property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Thornbury property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a Thornbury surveyor advise on the condition of the gas supply?

The RICS chartered surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the meter location/position as part of the survey, in addition to gas associated appliances like fireplaces. The fittings won't be removed. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any concerns about gas fittings or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations require landlords must to conduct appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Damaged Render

What problems will your RICS Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Thornbury which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really a sort of flat finish render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick hardens to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The coating is highly aesthetic and is found on Regency properties. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors commonly detail potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. trapped water resulting in the surface falling away. Other issues might include attack from sulphates or salts sucked out of underlying brickwork. Resolving Stucco problems can be expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues for Thornbury house? Can my Thornbury HomeBuyer Report consider this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a property will have an impact. Specific problems include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs, such as a hard-to-open bedroom door. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property. 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.
