HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Trowbridge Estate and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Trowbridge Estate property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Trowbridge Estate property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Does the Trowbridge Estate Property Survey cover this, and what defects will be reported on?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a property's foundations can create difficulties, with groundwater level variations and soil swelling being relatively common. 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 difficult-to-open drawing room window. A Trowbridge Estate surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco regency house in Trowbridge Estate which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually a smooth and flat render. Normally it is applied to brick hardens to a very smooth surface. Stucco is highly attractive and is often found on Victorian and Regency houses. it can be problematic and Trowbridge Estate Building Surveys can detail potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance moisture trapped behind paint (assuming painted). Other potential problems could be when moisture below DPCs which results in the render detaching. Fixing problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Traditionally built property

We are buying an old converted cow-house. What consequences will the architecture have on repairs?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Homes constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for Trowbridge Estate listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. If you have doubts, speak to your building surveyor for further advice.
