HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Great Yarmouth and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Great Yarmouth property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Great Yarmouth property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a home in Great Yarmouth and found that there is a 10mm gap between the kitchen wall and the door frame, could this be evidence of subsidence? What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

Movement of the foundations of a structure is called subsidence. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs where the ground level moves upwards.

Cracks that appear without warning may suggest movement and subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows which stick.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact will wet weather have on a Great Yarmouth house?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that this issue is usually overlooked by property buyers. One indication that drainage systems are at risk is rotten wooden gutters. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair. If not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Great Yarmouth surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Great Yarmouth building will include an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost. In order to determine an accurate value estimate the valuer will refer to local Great Yarmouth market factors and other factors relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms Your Great Yarmouth surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use key assumptions, for example the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Great Yarmouth assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to environmental problems like local Great Yarmouth industrial considerations, also being considered.
