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

If the Roe Green Village property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension on the Roe Green Village property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Roe Green Village property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor take into account on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Roe Green Village that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is smooth type of solid render. Normally it is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is very beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Roe Green Village Homebuyer Reports sometimes focus on any number of problems such as dampness trapped behind paint (assuming painted). Other issues could be when water below DPCs which causes large areas of detachment. Remedying problems with stucco can be expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor has suggested subsidence has been an issue. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related defects will my house survey look into?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be set right on a reasonable budget. Less common than subsidence, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

Subsidence can be difficult to diagnose, as most of the tell-tale signs could comfortably be as the result of several factors. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise the structure. The weight of the foundations will then compress the sub soil.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Maple, lime and horse chestnut trees should planted no closer than 20m to the property itself. If the load-bearing parts of the property have been damaged, these may be repaired with steel rods, fixed into place with cement to restore the structural integrity of the building. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

House Prices

There is a house in on with a local agent. What will the surveyor allow for when calculating house prices in Roe Green Village ?

There are a great number of factors which could have a bearing on the price of property like plumbing problems or whether there is any subsidence. .

An impartial way for you to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. Your qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).
