Home Buyers Survey in Hingham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hingham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Hingham property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Hingham property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

External walls

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual Condition rating 3 defects affecting main walls?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house buyers a clear understanding of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the property's construction. An example defect for this is cracks in brick walls. Foundations and possible defects within the walls will not be investigated. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when purchasing a maisonette next to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: domestic waste material disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Risks include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns such as cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Hingham will note structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to South Norfolk Local Authority and advise you .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're intending to purchase in Hingham. Is there a flood risk, and will the residential surveyor search for flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and the value of a property in an at-risk area may be impacted.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger. Flood water can enter a Hingham home through several routes, including landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The RICS surveyor may ask the occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
