HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Sheringham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Sheringham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Sheringham property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A property we intend to buy is built on clay soil. What should we expect a HomeBuyer Report to include?

Soil composition can have a measurable impact on a Sheringham property, with compression of layers of the sub-soil and considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content being relatively common. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. Visible results may be anything

from widening cracks to sticking window frames. There is a real benefit in booking a Sheringham surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this house is located near a river. Is there a major flood risk? Would our chartered surveyor consider indications of flooding?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing steams can all result in extensive flooding damage, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The HomeBuyer Report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a HomeBuyer Report if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Sheringham home is at risk.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to think about when buying older property? What effect will the house's architecture have on regular maintenance?

A building's age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Houses employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for Sheringham listed buildings, Materials suitable for the work may be required.
