HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Aston and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Aston property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Aston property's condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 19th Century coast house in Aston. What impact will the cladding have on regular maintenance?

A building's age can sometimes be an issue. Aston property built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create problems? I am buying a house in Aston. Can a Property Survey consider this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. 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.. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable widening cracks, to complete structural failure. There is a real benefit in booking a Aston surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Damaged Render

What will your Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco regency house in Aston.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Usually stucco is layered over underlying brick hardens to a smooth stone like surface. It is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Aston frequently focus on any number of problems for instance moisture trapped beneath paint. Other issues might be when water under DPCs that causes detachment. Re-coating problems can be difficult as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.
