HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Yoxall property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Yoxall property's general condition along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Yoxall Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Yoxall.

Stucco is in fact a kind of render. Normally it is applied to brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian homes. Stucco is often problematic and Yoxall Home Buyers Suveys frequently discover potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance horizontal visible cracking revealing the lines of mortar in the brickwork. Other issues may be when moisture enters below DPCs which causes detachment. Fixing problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Gas flame

Does a local surveyor report on the safety of the gas mains supply?

A surveyor will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the location of the meter where relevant, as well as gas related installations like ventilation of flue (if blocked). Any external fittings or housings will not however be taken off. Needless to say, gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer without delay.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create issues? I am buying a property in Yoxall. Does the Home Buyers Survey cover this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding, with uneven soil compaction and considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content being relatively common. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Yoxall house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like swift repair of any collapsed drains. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
