HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Aldeburgh and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Aldeburgh property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Aldeburgh property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can stone-built houses be difficult to repair. Which defects should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Damp proof course issues can often cause problems for Aldeburgh houses with stone walls. Problems which impact stone-built Aldeburgh houses can vary greatly, with issues like spalling brick being quote common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. W Reade of Aldeburgh Ltd, 70 High Street, Aldeburgh, Suffolk, IP15 5AF for details. Call 01728 452982 for more information.

Substandard guttering

In a Aldeburgh HomeBuyer Report what can 'E3' include?

A fairly common example may be leaking or clogged gutters. The rainwater goods are inspected by eye, where access is possible. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as defects in the sewer system. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to investigate gutters? And could it affect the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on property in Aldeburgh are overlooked. For instance, flaking or efflorescence on external walls can often mean that the gutters are blocked, and may lead to overflowing or blocked sewage. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair, if identified early. Where this is not maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
