Which Property Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Loughborough and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Loughborough property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Loughborough property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

English Heritage

We are purchasing a building near All Saints' Church , will this affect the property's value?

All Saints' Church is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest will usually increase the desirability of an area. Other monuments of interest are Dishley.. Your RICS surveyor will consider many local and regional factors during the homebuyer report in Loughborough. Refer to the English Heritage website for further information on All Saints' Church.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Loughborough. Is there any London brick upkeep guidance we should be aware of?? What impact do Loughborough environmental conditions have?

Loughborough brick-walled converted property can be subject to considerable issues, such as vertical cracking. Your RICS surveyor can investigate these as part of their report, with feedback. One problem often found is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. Contact Phase Brickworks Ltd for a repairs estimate at 020 8555 9991 or 65 Woodford Rd, London, E7 0DJ.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint.

If the Loughborough surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this property is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our home buyers survey look for indications of flood damage, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and owning a Loughborough home in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The survey report may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a survey report if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.
