HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Nayland and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Nayland property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Nayland property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a home in Nayland, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we check when the home is surveyed?

Nayland homes in otherwise fine condition can be hiding serious roofing woes. From clay tiles to valley gutters, every element of the roof should be reported on. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Nayland, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the house surveyors will look for a range of signs, including being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist

that scaffolding be used. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Nayland builder can provide one. Contact A A Craft of 24 St. Christopher Rd, Colchester, CO4 0NA on 01206 853478 to request an estimate.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco house in Nayland that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually a kind of render. Normally stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth flat finish. The coating is highly attractive and is common on some Victorian and Georgian houses. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors can report defects such as lateral cracking revealing the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems associated with stucco may be when water gets in beneath windows that results in detachment. Resolving problems may be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about bugs affecting some homes - Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Buyers in Nayland should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. As some pests can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
