HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Bramford and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Bramford property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Bramford property's condition as well as an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a dovecot in Bramford. What should be budgeted for repairs?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a home with character. For houses in Bramford built before the 20th Century, age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Properties showcasing traditional methods can be costly to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. Contact your Bramford surveyor for

more information. Erected between 1810 and 1420, St Mary's Church in Bramford is a traditional church tower of the time.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can damp weather have on a building in Bramford? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that the effect which high levels of rainfall has on a residence is rarely paid due attention by home buyers. If you have visited the home on a dry day, issues may have been hidden. Signs that drainage systems are at risk include mildew in the attic, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to repair fairly cheaply. Where this is not cared for, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay more for a full structural survey on sixties home ?

Full Structural Surveys do not technically exist now and the Building Survey has now superseded it. RICS would recommend that you plump for a RICS Building Survey in relation to the house you are planning to buy. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a mid 20th century of later unmodified Bramford house assembled from standard building materials i.e. brick and tile. There are certain restrictions exist with the survey as your surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the building or inspect any part that could risk personal injury.
