HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Nether Edge and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Nether Edge property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Nether Edge property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact may high levels of rainfall have on our new home? Could it affect the property value?

Both in Nether Edge, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact rainfall can have on your property is rarely paid due attention by home buyers. One indication that rainwater goods are damaged is spalling on walls around drainage. Poor drainage can lead to penetrating damp.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, and is also

relatively inexpensive. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Nether Edge, and can a Nether Edge home surveyor check for any water damage, or if other properties have been affected?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a house in Nether Edge will be secure against flood damage. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before flood damage occurs.

Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including air bricks. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Fortunately, no recent Nether Edge flood alerts have been given (source: Environment Agency).

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an old renovated farmhouse. Will maintenance costs be higher?

Some buyers in Nether Edge hope to own a home with character. Use of traditional methods, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Buildings constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. Speak to the property surveyor for more detail.
