About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Nailsworth

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Nailsworth and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Nailsworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Nailsworth property's condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Nailsworth House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a home near to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: non-hazardous refuse. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include methane gas generation .

Surveyors in Nailsworth will find any structural problems linked to the site. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Stroud Local Authority and advise you .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the house we're buying, but we are not certain. Do we need a surveyor?

Nailsworth houses will often be free of major infestations. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies to a serious infestation can include use of poison or removal of infected furniture. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Nailsworth, and the property's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will your Nailsworth Home Survey look into this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Specific issues include swelling of the soil. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable small cracks in the bedroom ceiling, to complete structural failure. There is a real benefit in booking a Nailsworth surveyor to carry out your Home Buyers Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Surveyor take into account on a stucco regency house in Nailsworth.

Stucco is just smooth type of render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. The finish is very grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian houses. It is very like plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Nailsworth Building Surveys sometimes report potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when it is faced with on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Re-covering problems may be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
