About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Stanwick

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Stanwick and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Stanwick property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Stanwick property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property and the vendor has stated that it has been built with Beer stone. Are there any major related issues that we should be aware of?

From Grey Dunhouse Sandstone to Brown Woodkirk Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Repair advice often includes repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Stanwick residential surveyor search for flood damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of property owners in Stanwick and across the country, and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in question is in danger. The house survey may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. lime-based plaster. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the house surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues for Stanwick property? Will your Stanwick Building Survey look into this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Signs like warped window frames in the living room can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
