What Survey should I choose for my house purchase in Bulwell?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Bulwell

    A Homebuyer Report should be chosen when you are purchasing a home constructed from standard materials i.e. brick and tile, in reasonable order and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bulwell

    The RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Bulwell) will also be conducted by a RICS accredited surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this when buying a non standard e.g. timber wall homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Bulwell

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. This is usually chosen by cash purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Bulwell and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Bulwell property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Bulwell property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Bulwell Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay a bit more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on period property in Bulwell?

Building Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification a couple of years ago by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. A HomeBuyer Report is enough if investigating a mid century or later unmodified Bulwell house of normal construction materials. The Building Survey is certainly the most relevant one to go for the house mentioned.

There are one or two caveats exist with a Building Survey insofar as a Bulwell surveyor wont be able to open up the structure of the property or inspect no ladder available for flat roofs.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the RICS Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Bulwell that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is really a specific type of render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is very beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Regency homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Bulwell can discover defects for instance when it is faced with on-going weathering which gets saturated and prone to frost damage. Other potential problems may result from the heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Fixing Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as skilled tradesmen are becoming more difficult to find.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of if buying a property in the region a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including domestic waste disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include heavy metals. Health problems like birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in Bulwell will find structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Broxtowe Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
