HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Windermere and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Windermere property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Windermere property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Windermere, and can a Windermere Windermere surveyor consider signs of water damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m residences are at risk of flood damage, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for residences in flood-risk areas. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. Flood water can enter a Windermere house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a maisonette proximate to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: industrial waste. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Health problems such as spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to South Lakeland Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Windermere.

Stucco is actually just a kind of smooth render. Normally it is applied to brick to form a smooth stone like appearance. It is very aesthetic and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian buildings. It is almost exactly the same as plaster in its constituency. It can have lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can detail issues which might include trapped water leading to internal damp problems. Other potential problems might be when the application has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Resolving problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
