Which property survey should I choose for my house purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Walsingham and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Walsingham property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Walsingham property's condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Walsingham Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would need to be wary of when intending to buy a home in Walsingham near a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by the local council. Walsingham surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local area issues and any connection they have with the property and its value. House prices are typically higher which is down to them being in their original state. However a growing number have fallen into a poor state for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are expected advise you if the home might be so designated and Section I of your Walsingham Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the conveyancing

process. Unapproved extensions to the building may be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

External walls

On a Walsingham HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a Condition Rating 1 have on main walls?

Green (condition rating 1) is the best possible assessment, and confirms that this part of the property is in a good state, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

For a Walsingham property, one issue is bowing, leaning or bulging brick walls. The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property in Walsingham. What should we be particularly aware of?

From Grinshill Sandstone to Ham Hill Middle Bed Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects affecting stone-built properties can vary, weathered stone being relatively common.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.
