HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Turvey and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Turvey property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Turvey property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will your Turvey Surveyor look for on a stucco regency house in Turvey that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just smooth type of render. Normally stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. It is very grand in appearance and was often applied to Regency buildings for example. it can be prone to defect and Turvey surveyors frequently report potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when movement of the underlying wall causes cracks.

Another example of problems could result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted that there is a 8mm gap between the dining room wall and the door frame when we last viewed the apartment. What subsidence issues will the home survey inspect?

Subsidence is movement in a structure's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be resolved. In addition, some homes in Turvey are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage. Subsidence is not always easy to identify because the issues which a Turvey surveyor will seek to find could easily be caused by other factors. In extreme weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Any further movement, or risk of movement, must be halted. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is high levels of rainfall an issue in Turvey, and does our RICS surveyor mention it? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is rarely considered properly by buyers. For instance, spalling on walls around drainage suggest that the downspouts are a cause for concern. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, problems with drains are usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
