Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Broxbourne and which one is cheaper?

If the Broxbourne property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Broxbourne, and will the chartered surveyor consider flooding, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home, such as via landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the property surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a house in Broxbourne , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What advice would the property surveyor in Broxbourne give in their report?

Houses in Broxbourne with no other major issues can be blighted by ponding, among a range of other roofing issues. Any part of the roof or loft, such as ceiling joists, ought to be checked. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Broxbourne, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the chartered surveyors will look for a range of signs, including literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like replacing rotten rafters or soffits, 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 builder with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.

Stone block wall damage

Can structures constructed with stone create upkeep problems for the owner? Are there any major defects that we should be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Defects affecting stone-built Broxbourne houses can vary, cracks being relatively common.

Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite.
