HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Clitheroe and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Clitheroe property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension on the Clitheroe property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Clitheroe property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency semi detached home in Clitheroe that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is just dense render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick that sets to a smooth and even finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is/was found on Victorian properties. It can contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Clitheroe sometimes show any number of problems which can include trapped water leading to internal damp problems needing repair.

Another example of problems could involve sulphate attack from sulphates sucked out of underlying brickwork. Remedying Stucco problems may be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming rarer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Clitheroe property and am concerned that the clay soil foundations have suffered some subsidence. Does the Building Survey cover this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Clitheroe property will have an impact. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar, such as sticking window frames. A Clitheroe surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the house we expect to acquire, it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board - will a surveyor report on the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Homebuyer Report in Clitheroe a surveyor should usually add detail on the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair.

This should include a visual inspection of the open parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other areas like examining the condition of fixed appliances like storage radiators or if there are residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs).

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey in Clitheroe.
