About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Whitchurch

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Whitchurch and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Whitchurch property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Whitchurch property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Whitchurch? Can the Whitchurch Home Survey consider this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Issues range from moisture changes in the soil to consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like keeping standing water on the property in check. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will my Chartered Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated home in Whitchurch.

Stucco is in fact a form of solid render. Normally it is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth flat finish. The coating is highly aesthetic and is common on some Regency homes for example. it can be problematic and Surveyors sometimes focus on any number of problems which can include trapped moisture resulting in the render failing. Other issues may involve attack from sulphates or salts sucked out of brickwork. Re-applying problems can be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
