HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Uttoxeter and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Uttoxeter property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Uttoxeter property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may rainfall have on a house?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact wet conditions can have on homes is not given the attention it deserves. One indication that drainage systems are under performing is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. This can lead to water damage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair, if identified early. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in Uttoxeter.

Stucco is really smooth type of render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco render is highly grand in appearance and is found on Georgian houses. Stucco is very like plaster. It can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to plant fibres to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors frequently report issues such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Remedying problems can be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.
