About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Buckden

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Buckden and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Buckden property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Buckden property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the property in Buckden we're buying, but we are not certain. Should we get a chartered surveyor?

Homes are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like Anglia Pest Services, Bryherstone House, East Street, Colne, Cambridgeshire, PE28 3LZ, or call them on 0148 784 3200.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will your Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Buckden that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact just a type of solid render. Commonly it is layered over brick that dries to an even finish. The finish is very grand in appearance and was found on Victorian and Georgian properties for example. it can be problematic and Buckden Building Surveys frequently focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when movement of the wall results in cracks. Other issues might result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Fixing problems with stucco can be expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I need to be conscious of if purchasing a property in Buckden near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have knowledge of relevant local area issues and any relation may have on the building. Property Prices are typically higher due to the areas being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to advise if the home is or might be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Buckden Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are raised by your legal adviser. Out of keeping extensions to the building will also be reported, however these should be investigated by your legal representative. Jeffrey Mills are a local firm situated at The Green, Huntingdonshire, Cambridgeshire, PE28 5ST and may be happy to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01487 832404
