HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Market Bosworth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Market Bosworth property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Market Bosworth property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency house in Market Bosworth that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick that dries to an even finish. The finish is highly attractive and is common on some Georgian buildings. It is very like plaster and mortar in its nature. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to animal fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Market Bosworth frequently reveal issues for instance trapped water culminating in problems with damp.

Another example of problems might include when the stucco is taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Remedying problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have heard that Market Bosworth properties built on clay soil can experience problems. Can a Market Bosworth Building Survey investigate this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Signs like warped window frames in the drawing room or widening cracks can be early indications of very serious structural issues. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could wet conditions have on a Market Bosworth home? Will the Market Bosworth surveyor report on this? Are repairs going to be expensive?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that the impact damp weather can have on a property is overlooked by purchasers. For example, "gushing" gutters suggest that the gutters are at risk.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair, if identified early. Where this is left untreated, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
