HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kirton in Lindsey and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Kirton in Lindsey property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Kirton in Lindsey property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create issues? I am buying a property in Kirton in Lindsey. Will the HomeBuyer Report look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the living room wall to warped window frames in the living room. A Kirton in Lindsey surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will a Property Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Kirton in Lindsey that I wish to buy.

Stucco is just smooth type of render. Usually it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. The effect is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Regency homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Kirton in Lindsey Home Buyers Suveys can detail any number of problems for instance when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems might result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Remedying Stucco problems may be expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Substandard guttering

On a Kirton in Lindsey HomeBuyer Report what are common defects an amber light rating impacting 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

The drainage system is inspected visually. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report defects in the sewer system. Scuppers missing from roof drains is an example of a Section E defect.

A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.
