HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Kesgrave and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Kesgrave property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Kesgrave property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Kesgrave House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should heavy rainfall have on our new property in Kesgrave? Could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Kesgrave and across the country, but this issue is not given more thought by house purchasers. For instance, streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering strongly suggest that the rainwater goods are blocked, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair, if identified early.However, the damage caused, where not cared for, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Damaged Render

What will my Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) house in Kesgrave that I intend to purchase.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact just smooth type of render. Usually stucco is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a smooth flat finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Georgian homes. it can be prone to defect and Kesgrave Home Buyers Suveys sometimes highlight defects e.g. horizontal cracking that follows the underlying mortar joints. Other issues can possibly result be when water gets in beneath flashings which causes the render detaching. Resolving problems can be difficult as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a building survey inquire into indications of water damage?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing steams can all result in extensive flood damage, and the value of a home in an at-risk area may be impacted. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including window frames.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage. The RICS surveyor may ask the residents about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood alerts were found for Kesgrave.
