HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Maldon property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations on the Maldon property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Maldon property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the Maldon Home Survey consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Maldon home's foundations, forcing them inward. There is a real benefit in booking a Maldon surveyor to carry out your Property Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to look into if intending to buy a property in Maldon in conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local council. Maldon surveyors must possess relevant knowledge of local issues and the connection they have with the building and its value. Values is usually inflated because of them being in their original state. However a large number have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. the removal front garden walls

Surveyors are trained to inform you whether the building looks to be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Maldon Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are conducted by your legal representation. Unapproved modifications to the building may be reported in the Maldon survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

Damaged Render

What will a Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Maldon that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really just smooth type of render. Typically stucco render is layered over red brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is very attractive and is often found on Georgian homes. It is similar to plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors frequently reveal defects e.g. when it is faced with driving rain which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems could result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Fixing problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting harder to find.
