HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Winkleigh and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Winkleigh property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Winkleigh property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a flat in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. industrial waste disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Worries include tars and other hazardous materials .

Surveys in Winkleigh will find structural problems resulting from the site. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Torridge Local Authority and advise you .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a house in Winkleigh, does the building survey check signs of flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Winkleigh home is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Winkleigh house or on adjacent sites. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Winkleigh and are looking for a 90s home constructed with stretcher bond walls. What advice would you give?

Brick-built Winkleigh residences demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also suffer from a number of issues, such as cracks. The surveyor in Winkleigh would usually include these and suggest potential remedies. One frequently reported defect is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Contact several local builders for quotes, including SS Constructions of Great Pk Rd, Rotherham, S61 3PE on 07857 807184.

A selection of different courses and brick making techniques of brick building can be found across Winkleigh. One example is rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
