HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Flitwick and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Flitwick property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Flitwick property's condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to look into gutters? Could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Flitwick and across the country, but the impact wet conditions can have on buildings is not given the attention it deserves by purchasers. For example, rotten roofing elements indicate that the rainwater goods are a cause for concern. This can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to remedy.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted the driveway surface is broken and uneven when we last viewed the flat. What subsidence issues will the Building Survey reveal?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. The builder will likely return to a new home after some months to make good any settlement cracks.

Cracks that appear suddenly may suggest movement and subsidence. In severe conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.

Damaged Render

What defects will my Flitwick Surveyor be focused on, on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency house in Flitwick which we wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a specific type of render. Usually it is applied to underlying brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The finish is very grand in appearance and was often found on Victorian and Georgian properties. it can be problematic and Flitwick Home Buyers Suveys commonly show issues e.g. when movement of the wall can lead to cracks. Other potential problems could result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-coating problems may be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.
