HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Longthorpe and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Longthorpe property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Longthorpe property's condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I am buying a derelict period terraced property, do I need to go for a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey was recently renamed as a Building Survey. If you are buying a modified Longthorpe house e.g. a tatty house - this is the best choice. The survey will outline comprehensive and relevant insight concerning the Houses state of repair as well as any maintenance needs after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. There will be several limitations with any survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Longthorpe house e.g. lifting up floor coverings. External buildings should be assessed.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a house near to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including industrial rubbish disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns might include chemicals like dioxins. Health concerns such as cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Longthorpe will flag up structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological databases as well as Peterborough Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with Hopton Wood stone walls. Are there any major defects that we should be aware of?

There is a long list of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Issues including stone faces affect many stone-walled properties in Longthorpe. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Longthorpe are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, consider a stonemason or specialist in Longthorpe, including Stamford Stone Co Ltd at Stamford Rd, Helpston, Peterborough, PE6 7EL.
