HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Wellingborough and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Wellingborough property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Wellingborough property's condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Wellingborough, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the surveyor investigate during the survey?

Residential property in Wellingborough in otherwise fine condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer sagging beams, among a range of other roofing issues. From the concrete tiles to the parapet walls, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like badly installed felting.

Fixing a leaking roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding.

A roofing contractor in the local area can provide an estimate. Call Greenham Roofing Services of 2 Streeton Way, Earls Barton, Northampton, NN6 0HX on 01604 811624 for more information.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Wellingborough. Can a surveyor search for possible flooding damage?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can all result in extensive flooding, and the value of a Wellingborough home in an at-risk area may be impacted. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the property survey may recommend maintenance.An awareness of characteristics of the Wellingborough area likely to affect the property in Wellingborough also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the current owner about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to buy is built on clay soil. Can a Wellingborough Property Survey investigate this?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. The composition of clay soil varies greatly, with some areas being more susceptible to clay soil subsidence than others, but the effects can be very similar. Signs like warped window frames in the drawing room or cracks along the drawing room wall can be early indications of very serious structural issues. A Wellingborough surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
