HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Suffolk property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Suffolk property's general condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Suffolk House Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor examine the serviceability of the gas flues?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the routing of any gas pipes where relevant, in addition to gas affiliated fixtures such as associated asbestos. External fittings however, won't be taken off. Of course, gas can be fatal, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

English Heritage

We are purchasing a flat near Baylham Roman Site , will this affect the property's value?

Baylham Roman Site is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest often enhance the desirability of an area. Examples of other sites of importance include Black Ditches, Bowl Barrow In Dixon'S Covert and Bury St Edmund'S Abbey.. A surveyor will consider many local factors when conducting home buyers survey in Suffolk. See the English Heritage website for further information on Baylham Roman Site.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered Victorian semi detached home in Suffolk.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish render. Typically it is applied to brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. The coating is highly appealing and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency homes. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as plant fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Suffolk Building Surveys can focus on issues e.g. trapped water leading to internal damp problems.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might involve sulphate attack from sulphates or salts absorbed from bricks. Re-covering Stucco problems can be costly as the skills are becoming rarer.
