HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Bucklesham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Bucklesham property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Bucklesham property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Bucklesham Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we consider drainage, and does our building survey mention it?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that this issue is rarely paid due attention by home buyers. As an example, "gushing" gutters will likely suggest that the drainage are worth a closer look, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost. If not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a cottage in Bucklesham. What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Some buyers in Bucklesham would be interested in owning a unique or characterful property. For houses in Bucklesham built before the 20th Century, age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Structures built using traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. Discuss this with your building surveyor for further advice.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we need to check on if planning to buy a property in Bucklesham in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Bucklesham surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the relation may have on the home. House prices are generally more than prices outside the area which is down to the areas being in good order. However many areas are falling into a poor state for example - out of keeping extensions

Surveyors can be expected to note if the house is/might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Bucklesham Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are raised by your conveyancer. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be commented on, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.
