Home Buyers Survey in Temple Fortune

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Temple Fortune and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Temple Fortune property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Temple Fortune property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Temple Fortune, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will the Property Survey consider this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a property can be significant, with shrinking of clay soil and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. For example, minor wall cracks in the living room may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Damaged Render

What will a Surveyor look out for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Temple Fortune that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just a type of render. Commonly stucco is layered over red brick that dries to a very smooth surface. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Georgian houses for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Temple Fortune frequently show defects such as moisture trapped behind paint (assuming painted) which cannot escape leading to worsening damp issues.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may be when moisture below windows that causes the render detaching. Remedying problems with stucco can be costly as the skills are becoming rarer.
