HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Blakeney and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Blakeney property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Blakeney property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property in Blakeney. What should we be particularly aware of?

The cost of upkeep for stone-built houses can be higher than for more standard. Defects such as algae affect many stone-walled houses.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported

by a rubble or brick wall. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as. Purchasers renovating houses should be aware that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. To source stone quarried in Blakeney, you can contact local suppliers.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a Blakeney HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of Condition rating 2 defects affecting 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

An example defect for this is a blistered or 'alligatoring' roof covering. Roof coverings are checked, provided that access is possible. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report.

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Blakeney - What does a surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors. Houses across Blakeney may be exposed to problems like bad drainage. Any part of the roof or loft, such as roof battens, ought to be checked. Your surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Fixing a leaking roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A roofing contractor in Blakeney can provide an estimate.
