About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Cringleford

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Cringleford and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Cringleford property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Cringleford property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a flat close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: inert waste material. No one wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include hazardous chemicals .

Cringleford RICS surveyors will note structural problems linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases and South Norfolk Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it worth paying a higher price for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on a maisonette ?

The Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification in 2010 by RICS. Opt for the Building Survey for the maisonette mentioned. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient for a post 1950s unmodified Cringleford property built out of normal construction materials and methods.

There are several caveats exist with a property survey - a RICS surveyor cannot (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the building for example, or comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Cringleford. Can a house surveyor check flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Heavy rain, drains blocked with sewage or soil and burst pipes could all cause major floods, and property purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before water damage starts, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Cringleford area likely to affect the Cringleford house also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the current owner if the Cringleford house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Cringleford, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we be concerned about during the survey work?

Cringleford residences that are otherwise ideal can be blighted by damage to the roof, including. From ceiling joists to purlins, all aspects of the roof should be investigated. Your surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Cringleford, but it is a health and safety necessity. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a builder from the area a quote for any suggested work.
