Home Buyers Survey in Hawkhurst

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Hawkhurst property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Hawkhurst property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a maisonette next to Tubslake on Water Lane and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: non-hazardous waste. A huge number of sites affect many thousands of people in England and Wales including Hawkhurst. Risks might include chemicals like dioxins. Health problems such as abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Hawkhurst will flag up structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases and Tunbridge Wells Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor take into account on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Hawkhurst that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a form of render. Typically stucco is applied to underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth stone like surface. Stucco is highly appealing and is was often applied to Victorian buildings. It can contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a grid underneath to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Hawkhurst Home Buyers Suveys can show any number of problems which might include trapped moisture resulting in problems with damp requiring costly repairs. Other issues might involve sulphate attack from sulphates derived from wet underlying brickwork. Fixing problems with stucco can be expensive as craftsmen are getting rarer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does wet weather have on a home?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which wet weather has on your property is usually overlooked by purchasers. Signs that downspouts are at risk include spalling masonry. This could then result in lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

Fortunately, guttering issues are generally easy to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are not cleared out regularly. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
