Home Buyers Survey in Silsworth

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Silsworth and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Silsworth property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Silsworth property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A house we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Does a Home Buyers Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a home, with sub-soil shrinkage and soil swelling being relatively common. 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. Visible results may be anything from warping of floorboards to warped window frames in the kitchen. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in Silsworth.

Stucco is just a form of render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick to form a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco render is very appealing and is common on some Georgian homes. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very similar to plaster or mortar to apply. Sometimes it can contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Silsworth Home Buyers Suveys commonly show issues for example trapped moisture resulting in internal damp problems

Another example of problems may be when the render has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Fixing problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Silsworth. Is there any Flemish Diagonal bond repair advice we should be aware of?? What impact do Silsworth environmental conditions have?

Brick-built homes do benefit from many advantages, but they will also indicate a range of defects. These can include efflorescence or badly applied render. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Osborn Brickwork at 31 Penfold Dr, Wymondham, NR18 0WZ on 01953 423400.

Brick-constructed property feature in construction throughout Silsworth, leading to a number of popular courses and methods. One example is Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond.
