HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Duxford and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Duxford property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Duxford property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish Stretcher bond advice, can the surveyor help?

Brick Duxford homes will be affected by diverse problems, such as erosion. For example, sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat and may require immediate attention.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. C & C Builders at 23 Coronation Av, Rothwell, Kettering, NN14 6DG on 01536 713475.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornate Della Robbia bond paving. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared

to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance caused problems in a house we used to own - What should we do about roof repairs?

Property in and around Duxford with no other major issues could feature problems like bad drainage. From collar beams to concrete tiles, all aspects of the roof should be reported on. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a local contractor for the job itself.

House Prices

How much is the right sort of price to be buying a house in Duxford for and What things will a Duxford qualified RICS surveyor take into account on a RICS valuation ?

A myriad of factors exist which could have a bearing on the price of property like whether it is freehold, leasehold or share of freehold or the local crime statistics. .

The best way for you to get an independent home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. A local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).
