HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Brundall and which is cheaper?

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

If the Brundall property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Brundall property, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a thorough analysis of the Brundall property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco Victorian home in Brundall that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact a smooth and flat render. Typically it is layered over underlying brick that sets to a smooth flat finish. The coating is highly aesthetic and is often found on Victorian buildings for example. Stucco is very like plaster or mortar to work with. Stucco is often problematic and Brundall Homebuyer Reports commonly discover potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when it is exposed to on-going weathering which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the supporting significant loads above such as cracking under the eaves. Remedying problems with stucco may be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would be advised to be conscious of when intending to buy a property in Brundall near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Brundall are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the relation may have with the building and its value. Values is usually enhanced as a result of them being in their original state. However a large number have fallen into shoddy condition e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors can be expected to inform you if the property is possibly within a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are conducted by your legal adviser. Out of keeping extensions to the property may also be reported, however these should be investigated by the lawyer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a ground floor flat in Brundall, does the Brundall surveyor search for possible water damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including poorly installed doors. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the property or on adjacent sites. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.
