HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Claverley and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Claverley property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Claverley are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local issues and any connection may have with the property. The value of homes will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of them retaining original features. However many have been neglected and are in a state for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Stone block wall damage

Can Ham Hill stone-built properties be hard to upkeep. Are there specific factors to bear in mind? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Ranging from Waddington Sandstone to Swaledale Fossil Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Claverley should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Seisdon Quarry, Holloway, Seisdon, Wolverhampton, West Midlands, WV5 7EY, quarrying Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 08708 508151 for more information.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted that there is a 14mm crack above the windows in the garage when we last viewed the property. What are the risks, and what subsidence issues does the RICS Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be resolved. In some older homes cracks may be visible in the Summer months that close up in the Winter when the materials contract, absorbing more moisture.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. Collapsed drainage can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Inside, keep an eye out for new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.
