HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Yiewsley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Yiewsley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Yiewsley property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Yiewsley Surveyor consider on a stucco coated regency house in Yiewsley.

Stucco is actually a kind of render. Usually stucco is applied to brick to form a smooth stone like surface. The effect is very aesthetic and is common on some Georgian buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Yiewsley commonly discover any number of problems such as damp trapped beneath paint coatings which cannot escape. Other potential problems could be when moisture gets in below DPCs that results in large areas of detachment. Re-applying problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create problems? I am buying a property in Yiewsley. Can my HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a property's foundations can create difficulties. Specific issues include soil swelling. In Yiewsley's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself., such as minor wall cracks in the lounge. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Yiewsley, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Yiewsley home but are worried about vermin. What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include insecticides and destruction of tainted materials. If you strongly suspect an issue with ants, or any pest, speak to your chartered surveyor
