Need a Home Buyers Survey? Which one should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Linton

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if planning to purchase a home built from conventional materials i.e. brick and tile, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Linton

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Linton) will also be conducted by a RICS surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this option when buying a non standard e.g. thatched roof houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Linton

    This is an independent valuation . It is usually chosen by mortgage free buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Linton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Linton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Linton property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a house proximate to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: non-hazardous waste material disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries include heavy metals. Health problems such as congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Linton RICS surveyors will examine structural problems linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as South Cambridgeshire Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this property is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our house surveyor inquire into indications of flood damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of property owners in Linton and across the country, and property purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The residential surveyor may ask the current owner about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor look for on a stucco coated regency home in Linton.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is a kind of smooth render. Normally it is applied to brick to form a smooth and even finish. Stucco render is very grand in appearance and is/was often found on Georgian properties. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Linton frequently report defects for example, when there is movement of the underlying wall results in cracks. Other issues could result from the pressure from heavy loads above such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying Stucco problems may be costly as the skills are getting rarer.
