HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Great Baddow and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Great Baddow property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Great Baddow property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Great Baddow. What input does a property surveyor in Great Baddow give? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-built Great Baddow structures demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also show signs of considerable issues, from crypto-florescence to horizontal cracking. For example, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and may require immediate attention. O'Brien Ecobuild Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Unit 9 St. Austell Bay Business Pk/Par Moor Rd, St. Austell, PL25 3RF or 01726 825160.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like running, or stretcher, bond, to the rare, such sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically

oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall. Consider renegotiating the price of the Great Baddow property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could rainfall have on a Great Baddow house? If there is work that needs to be done, will they be costly to fix?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However rain and the effect it can have on homes in Great Baddow are not given more thought by property buyers. As an example, a waterlogged garden will likely suggest that the drainage systems are under performing, and may lead to penetrating damp. Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to resolve, if caught early. If disregarded, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Conservation area

Are there any things I would be advised to look into if intending to buy a property in Great Baddow in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by local authorities. Surveyors in Great Baddow need to possess sufficient knowledge of local area issues and the bearing may have on the property and its value. Property values is generally enhanced which is down to them being unspoilt. However many areas are falling into disrepair for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are expected note if the house is possibly so designated and Section I of the Great Baddow Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by your solicitor. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.
