Home Buyers Survey in Admaston

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Admaston and which is cheaper?

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

If the Admaston property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Admaston property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor be looking for on a stipple rendered (stucco) house in Admaston.

Stucco is really a type of render. Normally it is layered over red brick to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is highly attractive and was often applied to Regency homes. The composition is very similar to any other render. Sometimes it can contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a grid underneath to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors can report issues such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Fixing Stucco problems may be difficult as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence-related defects will my home survey look into?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. Newer homes, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the building. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new house after time has passed in order to repair settlement damage.

In some cases, subsidence or movement is challenging to identify, as most of the tell-tale signs could quite easily be as the result of several factors. 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, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. 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. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
