About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Gorleston

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Gorleston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Gorleston property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Gorleston property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Gorleston. Can a home surveyor inquire into indications of water damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Gorleston property in question is in danger, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The chartered surveyor may ask the occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Gorleston brick-walled buildings can indicate a number of issues, such as erosion. The property surveyor will mention these, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. One serious matter is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork.

Brick-constructed property feature in construction throughout Gorleston, leading to a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture. For example, running, or stretcher, bond. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
