Home Buyers Survey in Tisbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Tisbury and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tisbury property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Tisbury property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Tisbury Surveyor look out for on a stucco Victorian home in Tisbury that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a specific type of solid render. Usually stucco render is applied to brick that dries to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is very attractive and is was often applied to Georgian buildings for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Tisbury Homebuyer Reports frequently discover potentially expensive to remedy problems such as horizontal visible cracking revealing the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems might be when moisture enters below sills that causes large areas of detachment. Re-covering Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting harder to find.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited a sixties house we are interested to move into we saw that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses - will a Homebuyer Report in Tisbury report on the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Tisbury Building Survey your surveyor will comment on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. The RICS surveyor is required to report on potential areas for concern such as checking that the supplementary bonding is in the correct place or checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the building will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every 10 years (5 if letting out). For expert advice on electrical testing try Stealth Electrical Solutions , 1 Council Houses, Ansty, Salisbury, SP3 5QQ .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will a Tisbury Property Survey look into this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including compression of layers of the sub-soil. In Tisbury's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Tisbury house's foundations, forcing them inward.

Taking precautions, such as immediately acting to remove standing water around a property, as a result of heavy rainfall or flooding, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. Parcels of wet and dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
