HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in East Hunsbury and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the East Hunsbury property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the East Hunsbury property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the East Hunsbury property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What input does a surveyor in East Hunsbury give for a 20s residence built with English bond walls?

East Hunsbury brick-walled residential property can be affected by both minor and serious issues, such as signs of movement. An issue of particular concern is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Contact P A General Builders for a repairs estimate at 07540 437723 or 98b West Avenue, Rudheath, Northwich, CW9 7ET.

As an example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall.

If the East Hunsbury surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a flat near to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include methane gas generation .

East Hunsbury surveyors will flag up any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Northampton Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should rainfall have on our new East Hunsbury home?

I find it odd that heavy rain and the effect it can have on homes in East Hunsbury are not considered. If you have only seen the house you are buying in on a sunny day, problems are unlikely to be visible. In most cases, drainage problems are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. Where this is not maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
