HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Talbot Green and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Talbot Green property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension on the Talbot Green property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Talbot Green property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

One of the neighbours said that damage to the parapet had been a concern, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Which issues relating to the roofing will be looked into?

Homes in Talbot Green with no other major issues could unfortunately be experiencing roofing problems, such as. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheeting. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like a complete replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat

when repairs do take place. A Talbot Green roofing specialist with a good reference can provide a quote.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered home in Talbot Green which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just smooth type of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick (sometimes also ceilings) that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is highly aesthetic and is common on some Regency buildings. it can be problematic and Talbot Green Home Buyers Suveys sometimes highlight issues e.g. horizontal pattern like cracking revealing the mortar joints underneath

Another example of problems could be when water below windows that causes detachment. Re-coating Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Talbot Green property built in the mid 90s, but it has clay foundations. Will the HomeBuyer Report consider this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Drought, for instance, can have a shrinking effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. For example, minor wall cracks in the living room may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
