Home Buyers Survey in Cambridgeshire

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Cambridgeshire and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Cambridgeshire property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Cambridgeshire property's state of repair as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a home in the region Barrington Cement Works on Haslingfield Road and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: domestic waste material disposal. A huge number of sites affect 100, 000's people throughout the UK including Cambridgeshire. Concerns might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health issues like abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Cambridgeshire will note structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to East Cambridgeshire Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Stone block wall damage

Can Hopton Wood stone-built property be problematic. What related issues must we watch out for, and what will the survey reveal?

Roof and gutter issues can often cause problems for properties with stone walls. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Mepal Quarry, Block Fen Drove, Block Fen, Chatteris Road, Mepal, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, CB6 2AY, quarrying Sand & Gravel, for details.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would be advised to on guard for if buying a home in Cambridgeshire inside Bassingbourn-cum-Kneesworth conservation area ?

Bassingbourn-cum-Kneesworth is in a conservation area and has been classified as 'poor' by English Heritage, with low vulnerability and deteriorating. For detailed information visit their website. There are thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Bassingbourn-cum-Kneesworth is administered by the Local Authority. Cambridgeshire surveyors are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and the relation they have on the property and its value. Property values will probably be significantly higher due to the areas being unspoilt.

Surveyors can be expected to tell you if the house is/might be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Cambridgeshire Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your lawyer.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a farmhouse in Cambridgeshire. Will the house's age be a problem?

A property's age can often be problematic. Houses built with traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, Traditional materials may be required. Erected between 1410 and 1739, the Granary in Tadlow is a traditional property of the time.
