HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Malvern and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Malvern property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Malvern property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my Chartered Surveyor take into account on a stucco coated house in Malvern which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really a smooth and flat render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The finish is very beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency buildings. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can report any number of problems for example, when movement of the underlying wall causes cracks. Other issues may result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Remedying problems may be difficult and costly as renderers are getting rarer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of vermin in the closet. Should we get a residential surveyor?

Property purchasers in Malvern should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The agent has mentioned subsidence might be a concern affecting the apartment. How could this affect the property, and what can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is movement in a building's foundations. In most situations, subsidence can be put right. The builder will likely return to a new building within a few months to make good any settlement cracks.

It is not always obvious that subsidence is at work, due to the fact that the usual signs could comfortably be caused by a number of factors. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.
