HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Cringleford and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Cringleford property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Cringleford property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any issues I would be advised to be wary of when buying a home in Cringleford near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority.

Your surveyor must have local knowledge of relevant local factors and the connection may have on the home and its value. The value of homes is generally higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to them being preserved.

RICS surveyors are trained to advise you if the house is or might be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser. Steeles (Law) are a local firm situated at 3 Norwich Business Park, Norwich, Norfolk, NR4 6DJ will be happy to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01603 598000

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Cringleford house what can 'E7' refer to?

This section covers conservatories and porches. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will be considered too. A stair run that is too short or steep, for example, would be reported here. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Cringleford are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the impact on the property individual defects may have.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations cause difficulties? I am buying a home in Cringleford. Will your HomeBuyer Report look into this?

Factors from Japanese knotweed to groundwater flooding can cause difficulties for a home-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. For example, small cracks in the garage ceiling may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. Fortunately, there are steps a home owner can take. Your surveyor should refer to maintenance options in their report, like keeping standing water on the property in check. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
