Home Buyers Survey in Ravenglass

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Ravenglass and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Ravenglass property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Ravenglass property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Ravenglass home built in the mid 60s, but it has clay foundations. Does the Property Survey cover this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure and collapse of the whole building! Steps like avoiding planting trees too near the house, and pruning where necessary can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. 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.

English Heritage

I am purchasing a home near Ravenglass Roman Fort , will this affect the property's value?

Ravenglass Roman Fort is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local importance can certainly enhance the attractiveness of an area. Your surveyor will consider many regional factors when carrying out the home buyers survey in Ravenglass. See the English Heritage site for more information on Ravenglass Roman Fort.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor consider on a stipple rendered (stucco) home in Ravenglass that we intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is just a specific type of render. Typically stucco is layered over brick to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is very beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency buildings. It is very like plaster and mortar. Sometimes it can contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Ravenglass Home Buyers Suveys can focus on defects for instance when stucco is exposed to driving rain which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Resolving Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming rarer.
