HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cromer and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

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

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Cromer property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor consider on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Cromer that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually a smooth and flat render. Typically it is layered over brick to form a smooth and attractive finish. The finish is highly appealing and is common on some Victorian and Regency homes. It is very similar to plaster in its constituency. It used to contain lime in it as well as a grid underneath to stop cracks. it can be problematic and Cromer Homebuyer Reports sometimes reveal defects which might include trapped moisture resulting in internal damp problems. Other potential problems may include when the

render has been taken down to ground level and short circuits the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Re-covering Stucco problems may be expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a Cromer property with Ham Hill stone walls. Are there specific problems to consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Stone quarried in the area is common to local homes in Cromer, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may be need of upkeep. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a house in the region a refuse tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. commercial waste. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health concerns like abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Cromer RICS surveyors will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as North Norfolk Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
