Home Buyers Survey in Lavenham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Lavenham and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Lavenham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Lavenham property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we look into gutters? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that rainfall and the effect it can have on Lavenham buildings are not given enough thought. If you have only seen the home on a dry day, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that rainwater goods are at risk include rotten wooden gutters, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Luckily, problems with drains are usually easy to remedy. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
