HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Frodsham and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Frodsham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Frodsham property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian home in Frodsham.

Stucco is a kind of render. Typically stucco is applied to red brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. The effect is very beautiful and is common on some Victorian properties. It may have lime in it in addition to a grid underneath to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Frodsham Homebuyer Reports sometimes show issues such as trapped water culminating in the surface breaking.

Another example of problems may involve attack from salts sucked out of bricks. Resolving Stucco problems can be dear as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting rarer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees)

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation and will also include a cost of reinstatement. In order to determine an accurate value estimate the surveyor will should use local property market knowledge and other factors about the property e.g. size Your Frodsham surveyor will also consider materials used and will use other assumptions e.g. there being no significant defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no major legal issues e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Such concerns will be clarified by your legal representative.

Further area assumptions, for example services, are made in addition to Frodsham environmental problems like nearby railway tracks, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Frodsham is worth checking. What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. A builder should return to a new home after some months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Cracks are a plain suggestion of subsidence, although they could be easily repaired and of little concern. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. As an alternative to underpinning, piling, or mini-piling, uses concrete or steel poles that are driven down into more stable soil, to stop further movement. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.
