HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Warfield and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Warfield property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Warfield property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will a Property Surveyor look out for on a stucco coated home in Warfield.

Stucco is just a type of render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that sets to a very smooth surface. The finish is very aesthetic and is common on some Georgian homes. it can be problematic and Warfield Home Buyers Suveys frequently highlight issues for example, when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-applying problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor check the condition of the gas appliances?

Your qualified surveyor will locate and visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the condition of the meter as part of the Warfield survey, in addition to gas connected appliances or installations like balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. The Warfield local surveyor will not remove external fittings or housings and won't conduct any tests whatsoever on the system. Gas is potentially deadly, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A neighbour said subsidence is an issue impacting the flat. Is this a major concern, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement usually occurs in recently built homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months. In addition, some homes are erected with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high gravel content, as this soil is more easily washed away by leaks. Signs of potential subsidence include fresh cracks in brick or plaster.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Unfortunately, even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can in rare cases take months. A Warfield surveyor can offer some advice and guidance if this may be the case.
