About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Ringmer

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Ringmer and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Ringmer property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Ringmer property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Can a HomeBuyer Report investigate this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Factors from mould to weather can cause inconvenience for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable warping of floorboards, to complete structural failure.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. 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.

Gas flame

Will the Ringmer surveyor give details on the serviceability of the gas installations?

The qualified surveyor will locate and visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters at the property, in addition to gas connected appliances/installations e.g. prefabricated flues. However, the Ringmer surveyor won't actually remove the external fittings or housings and he or she won't conduct any tests on the system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Property Surveyor take into account on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency home in Ringmer which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact just a specific type of render. Typically it is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. The finish is highly beautiful and is often found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. Stucco is very like plaster to work with. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a grid underneath to stop cracks. it can be problematic and Ringmer Home Buyers Suveys commonly report defects like trapped water leading to the surface breaking. Other potential problems may be when the render is taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Re-coating Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
