HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Broadclyst and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Broadclyst property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Broadclyst property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Flemish bond walls on this Broadclyst property appears to have several cracks. What are the possible consequences?

Broadclyst brick-walled buildings can experience diverse problems. These can include moisture damage or badly applied render. For instance, frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely and should be taken very seriously. I N Brickwork Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Unit 1J Grovemere House/Lancaster Way Business Park, Ely, CB6 3NW or 01353 772929.

Broadclyst home purchasers may need to consider that range of courses arrangements and colours are used in properties built throughout the ages. For example, Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I should check out when intending to buy a house in Broadclyst in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority. Your surveyor need to possess local knowledge of local considerations and the effect may have with the property. Values is, more often than not, higher because of them retaining their original character. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in shoddy condition e.g. the removal front garden walls

RICS surveyors are trained to tell you whether the property could be so designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are conducted by your solicitor. Unsympathetic modifications to the property will also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the Broadclyst property we're buying, but we are not certain - What advice should we get?

Pests like dust mites may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Broadclyst. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for pest problems may include professional cleaning.
