HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Cheshunt property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Cheshunt property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Cheshunt property built in the early 80s, but it has clay foundations. Does the HomeBuyer Report cover this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Issues range from moisture changes in the soil to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. For example, widening cracks may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Cheshunt, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Conservation area

Are there any things we would be advised to check out when intending to buy a property in Cheshunt in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Cheshunt must have relevant knowledge of local considerations and the connection may have on the home and its value. Property values will likely be higher due to conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many areas have been neglected and are in disrepair for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

RICS surveyors are expected note if the planned purchase might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Cheshunt Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised by your solicitor. Unauthorised changes that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised, however these should be investigated by your lawyer. Edward Oliver & Co are a local firm situated at 38-40 Crossbrook Street, Broxbourne, Hertfordshire, EN8 8JQ will be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 01992 633491

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Surveyor look for on a stucco home in Cheshunt.

Stucco is really just dense render. Commonly it is applied to underlying brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is highly aesthetic and is common on some Victorian and Regency buildings for example. It is similar to plaster and mortar. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Cheshunt surveyors frequently detail potentially expensive to remedy problems such as trapped moisture resulting in the render failing

Another example of problems may include when the render has been taken down to ground level and bypasses the DPC. Resolving problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
