About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Littleport

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Littleport and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Littleport property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Littleport property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits for having a full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a doer-upper bungalow?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered by Surveyors and the new more detailed survey which has been entitled the RICS Building Survey is now available. If you are intending to buy an altered property, for example an extended house, this is the most appropriate choice to have carried out. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a post 1950s unmodified Littleport house assembled from typical building materials. After a thorough site survey of the accessible parts of the house, the RICS surveyors report will be delivered to the client running through thorough and important details in relation to the construction materials used on the house. There will be several limitations with any survey because a qualified surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) open up the fabric of the of the Littleport house e.g. moving heavy furniture. See the survey differences article for a simple guide on home buyers surveys in Littleport.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a home next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including domestic rubbish disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include hazardous chemicals. Health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Littleport will flag up any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and East Cambridgeshire Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1840s house with stone walls. Are there any major issues that we should be aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include cracks. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Littleport buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Maintenance tips include. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Marston
