HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Waltham Cross and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Waltham Cross property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Waltham Cross property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

It can help to analyse the prices of flat recorded in Waltham Cross for comparable properties. The mean flat price completed between July and October in 2012 was £143, 600, which is £18, 900 less than the amount the vendor is asking for.

The only way for you to get a formal home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an integral component.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Waltham Cross. Will access to the roof of the house be a problem?

Residences in Waltham Cross with no other major issues can still be subject to roof maintenance problems, such as missing tiles. From collar beams to fascias, many parts of the roof and loft will be considered, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like wholesale replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a residential property and the seller's agent has stated that it has been constructed with Cotswold stone. Are there specific related issues to bear in mind?

From Cromwell Sandstone to Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects such as cracks affect many stone-walled houses in Waltham Cross. Stone quarried in the area is common to local houses in Waltham Cross, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
