HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the West Thurrock property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the West Thurrock property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a West Thurrock home with a loft conversion. What does the West Thurrock surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This often causes anxiety for home buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many residential properties could feature issues with the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar beams to slates. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like repairing a bowing truss, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences

harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A West Thurrock builder with a good reference can provide a quote. Call Bestin Roofing Ltd of 11 Diamond Close/Chafford, Grays, RM16 6PU on 01375 414142 for an estimate.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 19th Century cottage. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Some purchasers would be interested in owning property with real personality. A property's age, however, can concern buyers, and West Thurrock structures showcasing traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may create disruption for new owners. Contact your building surveyor for further advice.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we should consider when intending to buy a period property in West Thurrock in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local considerations and the connection they have on the home and its value. Property values will probably be higher due to them being largely unspoilt However many have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - out of keeping extensions

Surveyors will note if the planned purchase is/might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a West Thurrock Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unsympathetic adjustments to the property may also be advised but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.
