HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Beccles and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Beccles property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension on the Beccles property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Beccles property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

When acquiring a shabby Edwardian terraced property, do I need to spend a bit more on a full structural survey?

Structural surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a 60 year old or less unmodified house assembled from normal construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is certainly the correct survey to opt for the house described. After a thorough inspection of the accessible parts, the chartered surveyors report will be emailed and posted to the purchaser specifying thorough and crucial professional advice on the construction and uses of the home.

There are a number provisos exist with any survey insofar as your local Beccles surveyor is not in a position to (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the house for example, or assess serviceability of a boiler.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect should rain have on our new home in Beccles? Could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Beccles and across the country, but the impact heavy rainfall can have on properties is overlooked by purchasers. One indication that gutters are at risk is rotten roofing elements. Blocked rainwater goods can result in hazardous mould.

The good news is that this is generally easy to resolve, if caught early. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes cause problems for a new owner? Are there specific problems to consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including displacement. Defects such as displacement affect many stone-walled buildings. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. Maintenance tips include.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Beccles should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Caistor St Edmunds Quarry, Norwich Road, Caistor St Edmunds, Norwich, Norfolk, NR14 8QU, quarrying Chalk, for details. Call 01508 493444 for more information.
