HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Bungay and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Bungay property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Bungay property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Window frame

On the HomeBuyer Report what does 'E5' cover?

Quite a common example is deformation to a doorway or window frame. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent each defect requires attention.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Bungay, and can a Bungay house surveyor check possible flood damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Times). Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a Bungay property, such as via badly fitted air bricks. An awareness of characteristics of the Bungay area likely to affect the Bungay property also enables the RICS surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when purchasing a home near to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: domestic waste. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries might include structurally instability. Health concerns for example gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Bungay will examine any structural problems connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Waveney Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
