HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Framlingham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Framlingham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Framlingham property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Framlingham Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect does heavy rainfall have on a home, and does our RICS surveyor mention it? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However rainfall and the effect it can have on a home are not given the attention it deserves. One indication that drainage systems are blocked is spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. This can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited a sixties house we are hoping to acquire we noticed that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does Framlingham Homebuyer Report give details on on the electrics?

When carrying out a Framlingham Home Survey the RICS surveyor should usually remark on the condition of the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. This should include an overview of the open sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of any fixed electrical appliances, for example heaters or verifying the condition of a sample of switch gear. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every ten years (5 if letting).

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we would be advised to be aware of when intending to buy an extended house in Framlingham near a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by the local authority. Framlingham surveyors need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and the relation they have on the building. House prices are typically higher than non conservation area equivalents because of them being unspoilt. However many areas have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - ugly satellite dishes

RICS surveyors are expected advise if the planned purchase is/might be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Framlingham Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted as part of the legal process. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be reported in the Framlingham survey, however these should be investigated by your lawyer. Pulham & Co are based in Egmere House, Suffolk Coastal, Suffolk, IP17 1AG will be prepared to advise. Tel: 01728 602084
