HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Danbury and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Danbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Danbury property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying an older renovated farmhouse in Danbury. Will upkeep costs be higher?

A building's age can worry purchasers. Homes built using traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. Discuss this with your surveyor for further advice.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that the had been a problem with dry rot. What advice would the chartered surveyor give in their report?

Houses in Danbury that are otherwise ideal could feature damage to the roof, including. From rafters to wind braces, the whole roof should be investigated. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Danbury, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the Danbury surveyors will look for a range of signs, including a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

The expense of repairing a bowing truss, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a contractor in Danbury can provide one.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Danbury, and think we saw signs of vermin in the kitchen. What advice should we get?

Homes in Danbury will often be free of major pest problems. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Evidence may not be easy to find. For example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Treatment for pests may include chemical treatment or destruction of tainted materials.
