HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hellesdon property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Hellesdon property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should heavy rainfall have on our new property in Hellesdon? Where there are problems, what should we do?

Regular rainfall is common in Hellesdon and across the country, but the impact wet conditions can have on Hellesdon houses is usually overlooked. As an example, streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering indicate that the downspouts are a cause for concern. This can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

Fortunately, drainage problems are quite easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I pay more for a full structural survey, as opposed to a Homebuyer Report when carrying out due diligence on a maisonette in Hellesdon?

Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its renaming recently by RICS. We recommend that you have the Building Survey for the maisonette described. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if investigating a post fifties unmodified Hellesdon maisonette of conventional building materials.

You should be aware of a few limitations exist with any survey as a surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the maisonette or look into the internal condition of chimneys.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a building near to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. hazardous waste. Nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include methane gas generation .

Surveys in Hellesdon will notice any structural issues connected with the site. Your solicitor will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Broadland Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
