HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Caister On Sea and which is cheaper?

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

If the Caister On Sea property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Caister On Sea property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a Caister On Sea property and the owner has suggested that it has been partially constructed with Portland stone. Are there specific related issues to consider?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Repair advice often includes

clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Substandard guttering

For the Caister On Sea HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a green light rating have on rainwater pipes and gutters?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a home. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary, but regular upkeep may still be required. For a Caister On Sea house or flat, one issue is undersized downspouts. The rainwater goods are inspected by eye with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. This section does not include defects in the sewer system.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect will rainfall have on our new home in Caister On Sea? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Regular rainfall is common in Caister On Sea and across the country, but high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on buildings in Caister On Sea are ignored by property buyers. If you have only visited the home in the Summer, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that drainage systems are at risk include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. This could then result in rotten roof timbers.

Luckily, problems with drains are quite easy to remedy, unless they are not unblocked on a regular basis. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
