Home Buyers Survey in Sutton

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Sutton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Sutton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent mentioned that the had been issues with loose slates, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does a surveyor in Sutton pay attention to during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by chartered surveyors. A large number of properties will suffer damage to the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. eaves. The chartered surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Re-flashing and re-tiling, among other aspects of roof repair, can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist. Contact Series A Roofing of 197 Albion Rd, Sutton, SM2 5TD on 020 8643 5776 for a quote.

Damaged Render

What will the Sutton Surveyor examine on a stucco coated house in Sutton.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really a kind of smooth render. Usually it is applied to brick that sets to an even finish. The effect is very beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Georgian properties. Stucco is very like plaster or mortar. Sometimes it can contain lime in it as well as plant fibres to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Sutton can discover defects which can include trapped moisture resulting in the surface breaking. Other issues might include when the render has been taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Resolving problems with stucco can be dear as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming harder to find.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a 1984-built home in Sutton and saw evidence of the driveway surface is broken and uneven. What subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor examine?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations.

Cracks to a stairwell plaster decoration are a clear sign of subsidence, though they could be nothing to worry about. In serious weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
