HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Attleborough and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Attleborough property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Attleborough property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will the Attleborough Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Attleborough that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really smooth type of render. Normally it is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco is highly beautiful and was common on some Victorian and Georgian buildings for example. Specialists say that it is almost exactly the same as plaster. it can be problematic and Attleborough Home Buyers Suveys can reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when it is exposed to driving rain which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might result from the heavy loads such as cracking under the eaves. Remedying Stucco problems can be difficult and costly as craftsmen are getting harder to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could damp weather have on our new property in Attleborough, and does our home buyers survey mention it? Could it affect the property value?

Both in Attleborough, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rainfall can have on homes in Attleborough is ignored. As an example, "gushing" gutters strongly suggest that the gutters are damaged, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. If disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

House Prices

I would like to buy a flat in Attleborough, NR17 for around £116, 100. What will a Attleborough surveyor take into account when conducting a Home Survey ?
