HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Maghull and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the Maghull property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Maghull property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted cracks down the gable wall, is this subsidence? What subsidence issues will the Home Buyers Survey investigate?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. In some older homes cracks become apparent when temperatures rise , and in Winter these will close when the materials absorb moisture.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. Collapsed mains pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This may be referred to as groundwater subsidence. In some cases, the presence of buried peat or other organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise parts of the property's

foundations. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a home with Doulting stone walls. What should we be particularly aware of?

From Dukes Gritstone to Beer Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects such as weathered stone affect many stone-walled properties.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Repair advice often includes use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Chartered Surveyor examine on a stucco rendered regency house in Maghull.

Stucco is really a form of render. Typically it is layered over brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is highly attractive and is often found on Victorian properties. It is similar to plaster or mortar in its constituency. it can be prone to defect and Maghull Home Buyers Suveys frequently focus on any number of problems for example, when it is exposed to on-going weathering which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems might result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-covering Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as craftsmen are becoming rarer.
