HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Holt property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Holt property's general condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of insects in the bedrooms. What advice should we get?

Scare stories about house pests are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as cockroaches as minor annoyances. This issue should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies to pest problems can include professional cleaning and removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Holt surveyor.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we should look into if intending to buy a building in Holt in conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Holt surveyors must have local knowledge of local considerations and the bearing may have with the home. Values is generally more than prices outside the area due to them being in their original state.

Property surveyors are trained to note if the planned purchase is/might be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are conducted by your legal representation. Unconsented adjustments to the property should be reported in the Holt survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor. Max Wiley & Co are a local firm situated at 13a Fish Hill, North Norfolk, Norfolk, NR25 6HN will be able help you with further information. Tel: 01263 711 771

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a property in Holt, does the RICS surveyor check possible flood damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Holt and nationwide, is a serious concern for property owners, and house purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.
