HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Wells Next The Sea and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Wells Next The Sea property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Wells Next The Sea property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency house in Wells Next The Sea which we wish to buy.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is just a kind of render. Typically stucco is layered over brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The finish is very aesthetic and is/was common on some Victorian homes. The composition is similar to plaster to apply. Stucco is often prone to defect and Wells Next The Sea Home Buyers Suveys commonly detail potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when it is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems could result from the supporting significant loads above such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-covering problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the period property we are planning to move into we think we noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - will a Wells Next The Sea Homebuyer Report advise electrical defects?

When carrying out a Wells Next The Sea Homebuyer Report the home surveyor will usually add detail on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. A Surveyor is required to possible problems relating to things like confirming the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters or the condition miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). .

Examining the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What impact does clay soil have on a house's foundations? Does a Property Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to soil movement, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. 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.. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the bathroom wall to warped window frames in the bathroom.

Taking precautions, such as immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.
