Home Buyers Survey in Tring

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Tring and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Tring property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Tring property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Tring home and am worried about the implications of clay soil. What should we expect a Building Survey to include?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Issues range from sub-soil shrinkage to soil movement, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar, such as warped window frames in the bathroom. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Tring, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco regency home in Tring.

Stucco is a sort of flat finish render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick that dries to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is very aesthetic and was often found on Regency buildings. It is similar to plaster. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to animal fibres to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Tring Homebuyer Reports frequently focus on defects e.g. trapped water leading to problems with damp requiring costly repairs. Other potential problems might be when the application has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Remedying problems with stucco can be dear as the skills are getting harder to find.
