HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Langland and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Langland property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Langland property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Langland Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we would need to look out for if buying a converted house in Langland in a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local authority. Your surveyor must have sufficient knowledge of local area factors and the effect may have with the building and its value. The value of homes will probably be higher because of them being in good order. However many conservation areas have fallen into disrepair for example - out of keeping extensions

Property surveyors will advise you whether the location could be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised by your legal adviser. Unconsented extensions to the building will also be commented on, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 17th Century converted cow-house. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can often be problematic. Langland homes featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as original bricks, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Langland listed buildings. This may mean long-term upkeep.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Langland. What suggestions can a surveyor in Langland make? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-constructed buildings in Langland demonstrate several benefits, but they can also experience distinct issues, such as spalling. An issue of particular concern is 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. Contact D A Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 01206 735047 or 6 Bracken Way, Abberton, Colchester, CO5 7PG.

Buyers in Langland should consider that a good selection of methods and styles may be found throughout England and Wales. This being the case, upkeep may not always be straightforward. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
