What Survey is the correct choice for my intended property purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Heacham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Heacham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Heacham property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a house and the estate agent has made us aware that it has been built with Clipsham stone. Which related issues should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Upkeep costs for stone-built property can be higher than for more standard. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include penetrating damp. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Heacham should be able to supply local stone.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I would need to check out when purchasing a converted flat in Heacham near a conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Your surveyor need to have sufficient knowledge of local factors and the relation may have on the property. Values is typically significantly higher which is down to conservation areas being preserved.

Surveyors will report whether the location is possibly classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Heacham Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted by your conveyancer. Unconsented changes to the building may also be noted but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older cottage in Heacham. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

Some purchasers hope to own a old, characterful home one day. Use of traditional methods, however, can worry purchasers. Properties showcasing traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations.
