HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Warwick and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Warwick property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Warwick property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice get a Warwick House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the Home Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Warwick house's foundations, forcing them inward. Steps like immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted.

Damaged Render

What will a Warwick Surveyor look for on a stucco home in Warwick that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually just dense render. Usually stucco render is layered over underlying red brick hardens to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very beautiful and is found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. It is made from an aggregate, a binder and water and hardens to a dense solid. it can be problematic and Warwick Homebuyer Reports frequently highlight issues which might include trapped water resulting in the surface breaking. Other issues might involve attack from sulphates or salts derived from wet bricks. Fixing Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Warwick. What will we need to investigate when purchasing a house built in around 1750? What effect will the building's architecture have on repairs?

Many purchasers would like to own a unique or characterful property. For houses in Warwick built before the 20th Century, age, however, can sometimes be an issue. Warwick houses built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Construction materials, such as original bricks, may be required. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs. Discuss this with the RICS surveyor for more detail. As an example of Medieval building, Saltisford, Master's House in Warwick was constructed in around 1515.
