HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Cuffley and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Cuffley property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Cuffley property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a property proximate to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. non-hazardous waste material. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include methane gas generation. Potential health concerns like cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will note structural defects connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Broxbourne Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Cuffley RICS surveyor inquire into signs of flooding damage?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage could all cause major floods. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a house survey will inform your decision. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. Flood water can enter a residential property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The house survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this house in Cuffley is badly worn - what should we do? Does brick decay faster in Cuffley weather?

Brick-walled converted property in Cuffley can be subject to both minor and serious issues. For instance, rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call M & M Bricklayers, 99 Swiftsure Rd, Chafford Hundred, Grays, RM16 6YB on 07776 393067 for a quote for repair work.

Brick-constructed property feature in construction throughout Cuffley, leading to a number of approaches and materials. One example is Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one.
