HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Ryde and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Ryde property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, 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 substantial modifications, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Ryde property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I know that Ryde subsidence has been a concern. What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. The roots of [trees and bushes], for example, undermining foundations. This particularly in clay-rich soil, as moisture is taken up from the ground by shrubs and trees. Signs of potential subsidence include new cracks in the plaster, and 'rippling' in wallpaper that isn't caused by damp.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, 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. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Property Surveyor take into account on a stucco coated regency home in Ryde.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just a kind of render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that dries to a smooth flat finish. The effect is very beautiful and is common on some Victorian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Ryde Building Surveys frequently focus on any number of problems for instance horizontal pattern like cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems could result from the heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-applying problems can be costly as craftsmen are getting harder to find.

Defective door frame

In a Ryde HomeBuyer Report, what could a Condition Rating 1 mean for outside doors?

A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition, but regular upkeep may still be required. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house buyers in Ryde a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. Red, amber and green ratings give house buyers in Ryde indicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. A fairly common example may be a rotted, damp wooden door frame. The surveyor will confirm that all external doors work, but will not force open any without keys. Generally, the seal condition of double glazing is covered.
