HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Tiptree and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tiptree property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Tiptree property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 16th Century cottage in Tiptree. What consequences will the thatched roof have on upkeep?

Many buyers in Tiptree have looked at purchasing a unique or characterful property. For traditionally-built Tiptree property, age, however, can worry purchasers. Buildings constructed with traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. Speak to your chartered surveyor for more information.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can damp weather have on our new building in Tiptree?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather heavy rain and the effect it can have on homes are not given enough thought by buyers. For example, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts suggest that the drainage systems are a cause for concern, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Whether buying in Tiptree or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix if dealt with quickly.However, the damage caused, where not unblocked on a regular basis, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that loose slates had been a concern - What does the surveyor in Tiptree pay attention to during the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by buyers who are aware that property can still be subject to roof maintenance problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from parapet walls to clay tiles, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The maintenance of a roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a local roofing specialist for the job itself.
