HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Aylsham and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

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

If the Aylsham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Aylsham property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt get an instant Aylsham Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of if buying a building near to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: inert waste. No one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks might include methane gas generation .

Surveyors in Aylsham will consider any structural issues connected with the site. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Broadland Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a Aylsham house and the estate agent has informed us that it has been built with West Cornwall granite. Are there specific problems to consider?

Maintenance fees for stone-built Aylsham properties can be higher than for more standard. Problems which impact stone-built Aylsham properties can vary greatly, with issues like salt contamination of being quote common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Repair advice often includes using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Aylsham should be able to supply local stone.

If you are sourcing a particular stone, speak to a Aylsham specialist - Anglia Fire Surrounds Joinery of Norton Corner Cottage, Wood Dalling, Norwich, NR11 6AQ could help.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the Aylsham property we plan to buy - What should we do?

Homes in Aylsham are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.
