HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Tidworth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tidworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer comprehensive details of the Tidworth property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the RICS Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Tidworth.

Stucco is in fact a kind of render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco render is very grand in appearance and is common on some Regency properties. it can be prone to defect and Tidworth Building Surveys can detail any number of problems such as when movement of the wall can lead to cracking of the surface

Another example of problems might result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-covering problems with stucco may be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a house with Hopton Wood stone walls. Are there any major issues that we should be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Tidworth are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Maintenance tips include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Tidworth should be able to supply local stone.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent has said subsidence might be worth checking affecting the home. What solutions are to available to resolve this?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. In general, homes in Tidworth are erected with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Tidworth. Collapsed drainage can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries out, this organic matter will rot. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
