HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Creekmouth and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Creekmouth property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the Creekmouth property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Creekmouth property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there could be asbestos textured coatings being found in property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials such as acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic ceilings. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to displace it and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Creekmouth Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos during a Creekmouth building survey. However they will mention the risk of asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues? I am buying a house in Creekmouth. Will the Creekmouth Building Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil, with uneven soil compaction and considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content being relatively common. 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. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! There is a real benefit in booking a Creekmouth surveyor to carry out your HomeBuyer Report, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Parcels of dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Creekmouth Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Creekmouth.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish render. Commonly stucco render is applied to underlying red brick hardens to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is very aesthetic and is often found on Victorian and Regency properties. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Creekmouth can show issues e.g. lateral cracking revealing the mortar lines between the brick.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when moisture under flashings which causes the render detaching. Re-coating problems may be difficult as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
